That word amount setting

Question

Hey, well, I have to deal with having to type 100 words whenever I open a topic and reply, and other, but now it seems that I have to type 200 when I was replying to someone here?

 

What's going on?  Could we at least diminish the word count to at least 50?  Could it be done?  I am sure others have already asked about it, but it is to o much that I have to keep coming up with what to reply other than what is needed when it was 100, now that is 200. :/

As stated above by another, it's a character minimum, and the minimum varies according to which forum you're posting in.

 

The reason for them, also as stated above, is to encourage higher-quality posts. Implementing those requirements did much to eliminate spammy posts such as one-word or no-word responses (such as posts consisting of nothing but a reaction image) and miscellaneous off-topic nonsense. A flawed system, to be sure, but it's better than when there was nothing.

 

 

As stated in the OP of this thread in the Canterlot Castle forum, work on a much less cumbersome alternative is in development.

Well, just putting this out here, it's characters, not words.

 

The character limit's not gonna change, it's implemented to make quality posts.

 

Life advice has 200 because it's a more serious section. Everywhere else except Welcoming Plaza, Feedback, Cloudsdale, Pony.fm, and some RP sections have 100 characters, or they should.

 

If you're in somewhere that has 100 characters, and it still says you have 200 or more, I'd recommend opening up a support ticket.
