Post character length requirement


(Jeffrey Hayes) #1

Hi Leah,

The requirement that a post be at least 20 characters long prevents us from simply saying “thank you” in response to a comment :slight_smile:

Best,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,

Thank you for posting your feedback. We really appreciate it! We want to make the forum as user-friendly as possible.

I’ve looked into the posting length requirement. Fortunately, the setting is customizable. I also looked into why the default setting is set to 20 characters. The reasoning behind the minimum requirement is to encourage discussion.

But, I agree with you. I like to comment back with just a thank you. I’ve reduced the posting requirement to 10 characters. This should allow you to post a simple ‘Thank you!’ (with punctuation) as a reply.

I was tempted to leave it at that, but thanks - you guys rock :slight_smile:
