Why 20? Why not....5? Or 10?

YO WASSUP :apple:

So, most of us have been in dat position in which u write something but it's under 20 letters. WHY 20?!
Liek, of course we don't wanna clog space, so we can't use one whole box just to say something liek "k" but sometimes 20 is a lot more than u can do. IDK.
So just saying um in the next forum update make the thing liek 10? Unless there's another reason.....then tell meh.

It's in there so robots constructed to clog things up don't get away so easily.

It's annoying, but there for anti-spam. :\

Also, Hopscotch doesn't control the forum and make their updates, Discource does.

Discourse is the service that makes forums, like this one.

And there's probably some admin control somewhere that does change the character minimum (maybe possibly) but they probably won't change it, as some spam people do get on the forum.

It's there so that people don't write spam messages all the time. You can check out this topic.:grinning:

No problem @BlockyFocus.:slight_smile:

Can we go to my general and talk

Sure.

Basically to prevent spam, if someone just types a letter and that's it, the forum would be spammed a lot. XD

Coz 20 is da bot's lucky number :3

JK! ╮(╯▽╰)╭

Technically, Hopscotch can change some minor features of the forum if they want, to make it theirs, but the entire forum is ran by Discourse.

Young child couple of things
1. Because we don't want to clog up stuff. The platform we use was originally for something else, the boys did the think you need to type short answers, if you need to reply "ye" or "agreed", it wants you just to like
2. Search before you ask questions
3. Exhales WHY U NOT NO WHAT DISCOURSE IS

Use this: < yo >
Put in whatever you want and it will be invisible. If you really have to go against 20 characters...
Edit this and you will see the hidden text.

Sorry that I'm late, but I found out you can add letters, but put '<' and '>' on the outside of the letters so that they're invisible, but still count towards the 20. I'm also a member now °U° (<--- creepy smiley face) yay
