Is there a way Seth can get rid of this? Because I think most forumers really hate it.

Why no?

Because this may be a Road to Spamming :3

like:

"Scammed!"

(7 Chars)

I don't think it should be removed because it's really annoying to read a post that has less that 10 chars

"cool" if someone posts this, its useless

And its annoying if you want to post something, like an answer to a simple "yes or no" question and have to write something because your post is "too short."

They can't change it. (Or that what I know).

It is not 'bout Seth. Is 'bout VBulletin servers. I have experience on them. In all of them you may use more than 10 Chars.


Also, I disagree, people could spam posts like this: Hi. LOL. Cool. Scammed. ., and those things. That are annoying. Is better how we are now.

I think he should only have the 10 character rule when your posting a thread but when you're replying to one it shouldn't be applied cause for people who wants to ask a short question it could be annoying....

Writing only yes is kind of boring you see...

Like example: in your school test, they ask you a question and you write only yes. I don't think you get any marks


You need to be more specific

The 10 character rule is one of the major gates holding back the vast army of spammers. If this were to be removed people would turn forum threads into personal conversations with brief responses. I personally think more characters should be required.

True, it must be increased to atleast 20

Because if someone writes "favorite!" or "hilarious!" it's kind of useless

I picked "No" because that would increase spamming on the forums. It will also make the post more meaningful then it would be when you typed a 1-10 letter word(s).
