Thread title too long...
#1
...or whatever that error message says. I haven't seen it lately but it's still occurring. When a thread title runs to the character limit, all responses exceed that limit when the software adds "Re:".

It seems just a tad ridiculous to ask every responding poster to edit 'Re' out of the title with every post.

I don't see this issue in any other forum I frequent, is it a problem just here? Is it PA2A or MyBB? Is there some add-on available, or is setting the limit to 200 our only solution?

I find it hard to believe there is still no fix for what appears to be a simple problem... Shrug

The software just needs to remove the "RE", or they could increase the character limit to some ridiculous number that will never be an issue, like 200chars for the title line.

Found this after a brief Google search...

Apparently MyBB 1.6.8 and earlier only allows a max of 85 characters. Dodgy

Yeah, we've been watching this but the fix ain't so easy. It would require a core edit which are typically bad if you plan on updating the software down the road. It shouldn't be long until 1.6.9 comes out! Cool

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."
