That's definitely not happening.

That's set it place to stop the newbie post fluffers who try to spam their way for a sig.

If it is possible I guess we could remove the restriction for OT. Can't fluff your way to 40 then!

Default Re: Character Limit

Wow here is a idea. How about putting a little more thought into a post instead of QFT? I mean is it really so hard to come up with something more than 3 letters? You cant come up with 2 more to make the 5 charater limit with the extensiveness of the English language you find it hard to come up with 5 characters? I find that hard to believe.

I don't even know what QFT means...

I say leave the character limit. Anything less than 5 characters is IM talk. The site I moderate on had it set to 20 before but now it's at 10 I believe.
