Forums posts have to be 20 characters or longer


#1

So can someone please tell me why the posts on here have to be 20 letters or longer?


20 letter rule (message) 15 letter rule (topic title)
#2

This line has 20 letters


#3

It’s to prevent responses like ‘lol’

The idea is that if people say at least a full sentence everyone will be more involved and friendlier, or something.

The answers are in here https://forum.choiceofgames.com/guidelines

Basically though it’s to ensure that all comments actually contribute to the discussion. If you just want to lol or say you like a post just hut the like button next to it instead.

@StarwarsMaster, hey, it’s better than 20 characters or less

:grinning: :stuck_out_tongue:

Personally, I would like to be exempt from the 20 character rule. But apparently, I’m not.


#8

Yea, but how did @WulfyK just put a couple of emoji? Do they not count? If they don’t count wouldn’t that still be under 20 characters

Worth a thousand words.

:smile: :stuck_out_tongue: The words are smile + 2 : = 7 and stuck_out_tongue +2 so its possible.
