My Question is regarding a restriction put in this forum that any post must have at least 50 characters in it, Why........?

Anupam_smart,

Allow me to answer your query. First of all, we do have a limit of 50 characters for any post. That is because -

1. It was observed that many of the posts were simply had no value. We had to force 50 char. limit when CE started getting posts such as "Hi!!!!!" , "I like this post!!!".

2. We are not a social networking forum like Orkut, Friendster. Moreover, we are read by Engineers, CEOs, experienced professionals from all over the world. It makes perfect sense to avoid one/two word posts. Moreover, it is expected that each new member goes through the Lectures#1-#4 in our Newbie Training Center. We don't have mega-expectations from CEans 😀

In the end, it makes sense for all of us to make a difference by having a fun loving, professional team of engineers!

I hope you agree with all of us here on CE 😀 Hope to see you around & have a great time with CE.

Yepp! I agree with Big K! It is not a bad idea to have 50 character limit. Very good people and a professional approach - that is something which has glued me to this place for so long!

Big K, this question should be posted in newbie training center.
