Sure, but there is a problem. How would you restrict spam which is something like - "hieeee...."

Decision of setting the 50 character limit wasn't taken at the spur of the moment. Don't go by the count of letters. Its an effective method of preventing spam (as we have realized). Of course, we need to hear what other CEans have to say about the limit. We haven't received even a single complaint against the 50 character limit ever since it was introduced.

If majority of CEans feel that 50 character limit should be removed, we will remove it.

dude how about starting a poll and seeing how many people actually vote ... if out of 5 3 dont say anything 1 doesnt post and 1 complains doesnt mean every1 is agreeing to something ... start a poll then we will see ... and i showed u that it can be by passed easily ... no big deal .... reduce it makes more sense 😉

Read my earlier post. The decision to introduce 50 character limit was introduced because we started getting lot of spam. I'm not convinced that 50 characters is a big threshold. Remember, we aren't here to build another social networking website where people just say 'Hi' or 'Thank you' for the heck of it; and I hope you also appreciate our motive.

I encourage you to read our Common Sense Guide, especially CCS#3 available here - https://www.crazyengineers.com/index.php?categoryid=20

Allow spam to attract members? 😡 NO ! Please NO ! I have absolutely no problem with the limit. I think being SPAM free is our USP. What is the problem with character limit?? 😒 I don't see any reason. this thread is ridiculous. close it.

haha everyone is spamming on this thread. The limit is ok. People are after the post count, I think.

Enjoy!

I would have totally vouched for the 50 limit. The problem is with reduced number, people think its ok to reply a post without even reading it!

As I have seen, some will just reply a line, which allows them to escape reading the whole post. Forums are to exchange information and ideas. Not to debunk information with one liners.

And you, Biggie have seen it clearly happening.

Well, I agree. Of course we will monitor if that happens. As I said 50 character limit had helped us reduce the spam to a great extent. Let's give a try to 10 character limit for few days, if it works out fine, it remains; if not, we go back to 50.
