      Hi Overlords,

      The software rejected a post based on word length with roughly 100 words being the limit.

      In other words, the software would not allow the original post of 252 words.

      The post was only completed with an original post of 95 words and then subsequent editing to add the remaining 157 words.

      This is clearly a bug since an original post could easily be thousands of words on a particular thought or topic.

      it’s another “first” and we will look into into fixing it.

      As far as I can tell there are no limits to the length of topic, usually referred to as OP’s here. So an original post should have no limitation on number of characters.

      However, there IS a maximum for replies to topics, which I set to a rather large number. That should clear the reply max word count issue. I’ll get with Deadpool about any topic limitations that may be set somewhere I haven’t seen yet.

        I’ve had the same problem and here’s how I’ve been able to work around it:

        1)write my reply and fail multiple times when I try to submit

        2)select the bottom half (I haven’t really paid much attention to the length – I’ve not been consistent) and cut

        3)submit the shortened post and it goes thru fine

        4)immediately edit the post and paste the part that was cut out.

        It has always worked for me although I don’t post as frequently as many others here so I may just be lucky.
