Signature Limit 1000 characters

Recommended Posts

Something is wrong with signatures as it keeps saying to me I'm exceeding 1000 characters limit and my signature is not anywhere near this 1000 character limit?

 

So I try how many characters is actually limit and edit my signatured to have 500 numbers and I'm right.... it gives the same error characters limit 1000

 

I can't even put 300 characters

 

Can you fix this please?

I can see you've changed the warning to show limit to 500 characters and thanks for that... but still not quite correct as I can put 491 characters only ;) (I've counted them :D)

I counted them too.

 

Your current signature has 506 characters in it. ;)

no its not, count again. I made it easy with numbers in sets of 10, 50 per line... last line if full would add to 500 but it's 9 digits short :smilewink:

 

EDIT: UNLESS these __________________ lines on top of signature are counted also? Which if they were should not be counted as they are there regardless what I put in signature... site/forum admin should increase number of characters to include these lines so if there are 10 characters of lines, add that to 500 and make it 510 to give users TRUE 500 character limit for THEIR OWN stuff

Also Kuky, i'm not sure whether you are inside the 120px height limit with that.

 

that should apply to text also? But still that can't be it either as what I have now (491 numbers) works, but if I add 1 more it doesn't, so same height with 491 works but with 492 it doesn't, so its not quite stated 500 characters.

are line returns counted as a character ?

 

10 lines, 9 returns (last line has no return) 491 + 9 returns = 500 ? no ?

 

LOL! You're right hitting ENTER for new line IS counted, that's stupid :music_whistling:

At least finally the secret of missing characters limit is out :D and I need to edit my sig again

Here is the contents of your profile, copied straight out of your profile except with a count of characters at the start of each row, also changed [ and ] into ( and ) in order to make it show correctly below:

 

58: (SIZE=1)01234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789

48: 01234567890123456789012345678901234567890(/SIZE)

58+48+8*50=506

 

Also, newline is a character. Information stored is information stored, and "new line here" IS information.

Not stupid, just how computers work. ;)

Erm... but why does count towards sig character limit? So even font formating counts towards this limit? Isn't that bit stupid? What's the difference if I type in size 1 or 2 if I want to type something?

 

Also error message states:

Your signature cannot be longer than 500 characters excluding BB code markup.

Doesn't this mean font type/size colour/etc should not be included in the character limit?

Ah, right, I thought this was the systematic limit, but this appears to be the content limit. Different things and they act differently. Sorry.

Yes of course, the point is to keep the forum readable, so the average post doesn't contain one line of text and a full page of signature, get it? :)

Good, fast, cheap. Choose any two.

Sobek, I get the intention of limiting the signatures but when it says it allows for 500 characters then it shouldn't matter if I make text formating for those characters in different colour, size, etc... it's should still allow 500 characters for me to type, and one more time:

My point is, why do you want you sig to contain 500 characters when it's not practical to arrange them in a way that does not violate forum rule 2.3?

 

Btw. empty lines aren't allowed either...
