    Bumping this. Please, implement at least 5K, preferably 10K+, though!!

    Option to change the limit for example 5000 or 10000 characters would really be a blast. Also need it for RPG game, but sometimes cut my massages even during discussions on general game chats

    2000 characters feels extremely cramped when trying to post code snippets.

    I agree with this suggestion, implement an option for server owners to change max character limit.

    Yeah, it's perfectly reasonable to have a somewhat restrictive default limit to avoid spamming and random abuse, but it's really inconvenient to not be able to change it where it serves no purpose.

    @remedy I don't want to have to open my browser, navigate to a web page, paste it into a web page and then drop the link in chat. I just want my text to be in chat. 
    (For now though, thanks for the link.)

    I'm adding this comment in the hopes this will be heard by the discord devs.

     

    please add options to adjust character limit.... PLEASE

     

    mainly for the same reasons as listed above.

    Agreed this feature is very annoying for those who want to make a server

    Can't agree more. I have been roleplaying on discord since before the limit, which was great. But suddenly it changed and it is immensely frustrating. I can understand a limit, but 2k characters is not a lot. I can see where you might want to have some sort of limit to prevent spammers (although, admittedly, I have never come across any), but it should either be larger or there should be an option to turn it off in certain channels if you are an administer. A combination of both would be divine. Everyone I talk to agrees wholeheartedly with this and finds the limit to be an issue. This isn't just 2-3 people, but literally dozens that I have talked to personally and roleplayed with.

    I agree. This is ridiculous, it's like telling you "don't write too much, don't THINK too much for that matter". What about the relics among us who are not satisfied by communication with friends that comprises of 2 words per line and want to exchange valuable information from time to time? So you write your thoughts for like 5-10 minutes, whatever, and at some point the client hits a limit and won't write any more characters. Fine, you delete the last incomplete sentence and hit enter. Should work, right? EEEK, WRONG. Because you've exceeded the character limit of petty 2000 waaaaaaay back, but nothing in the program bothered to inform you of that. If the developers are so keen on the character limit (although it's ridiculous), at least they could add a character count so that we can effin *know* where that limit is and when we've crossed it. Though to be honest, it isn't their job to determine how I'm going to communicate with my friends and whether it's nice of me to write walls of text to them or not. I write long. Many people write long, and that should NOT be discouraged, because it's often a matter of intelligence. For the record, none of my friends has ever complained.

    I would love the limit raised to 10k or 20k if it needs a limit at all.

    What I think would be a helpful solution to the 2,000 character limit would be a toggle in settings for the server. If the admins of the server don't want it on, they can turn it off. If they do, they can leave it on. Have it auto-enabled, or auto-disabled when a new server is created. Or make it even more specific than that and have it be specific to channels or sections--some customization would be really nice because not everyone uses Discord for gaming chat.

    @Leotomas -- I don't think you fully understood what was going on. Some of us use Discord for text-based role play. That means we're writing stories, and a part of a story can easily get up to 2000k characters. I had a look at pastebin to see what it was about, and it doesn't seem to be what we want. The point of using Discord for us is for the chat feature, among other things, a feature that pastebin doesn't have. I also use Google Docs with my friend from Discord, and that works, but for various reasons, including the fact that Google Docs doesn't work very well on either of our phones, we prefer Discord for some scenarios. Please don't tell us we're doing things wrong just because we're using Discord differently than you do.

    @sawayoshi so if it's a technical thing why do they say the limit is "to be courteous". Like just say its a technical thing

  • EightBitUmbreon

    I would agree, however I believe this should be an option for servers to enable/disable. And for the limit in DMs, perhaps an option in settings?

    I do a message of the Day on the server I Admin.  I regularly have to split my messages as they are like the daily paper every morning.  Not too ling but over 2,000 characters, couldn't you set it to Admins/Owers by default and let assign who can or what roles can?  That would be great.  Thanks.

    Agreed....this is 2019....not 1999. We don't use dial up anymore.

    We can exceed the old UUNet character limit without issue these days.

    I switched from Slack to Discord because Slack sucks so much about code (syntax highlighting, etc).

    But since I'm on discord, I saw that there's a limit of 2000 characters which is way too low when you share some code.


    Please increase this size, thanks.

    Definitely want to add to this topic here. Many people had already brought it up but I just feel like saying it once again.

     

    The Roleplay and Writer communities are h u g e and having to constantly double or even triple post to get a proper response out can hurt at times. Especially when thinking back on when I had used Skype and such a short limit did not exist.

    Discord has many perks and is overall superior to Skype in any way, imo. But the almost stupidly short character limit has become a main nuisance ever since I had switched over to it. 

    I do not know about Discord's limitations or anything, how all of that works out, how data is allocated and all of that jazz... but does it provide any benefits to keep the character limit this low? From a technical standpoint I mean, then I guess I would understand why things are how they are. 

    For now tho... lemme be a disgruntled man crying out for more characters per post! Woo!

    They're going to remove this ticket and "combine it with another" that's months old to be "organized." So they dont have to look at all the tickets asking for this.

  • DudeTheGray

    Please, Discord. People have been asking for this for literal years.

  • Fillix

    I'm not asking for it to be removed indefinitely.
    I'm asking to give the server owner the option to turn the limit on or off. So people that start coding or story servers, they can turn it off and post their large texts without problems.

    I think it’s important to remember that this isn’t just an issue in servers. DMs shouldn’t have a limit either. Or you should be able to change a setting in account management to have the limit either on or off. Or at LEAST a setting to allow or disallow a limit when getting messages from friends. (Similar to allowing stranger messages or not.) I only am in one server and the issue isn’t there but when I am privately talking to friends we run into it nearly every time. It’s not being mindful to others when we have to break one message up 2 or 3 times.

    Everyone commenting on this should make another thread, they can't ignore it that way.

    I'm back here again with the exact same problem. I really feel like Discord is never going to address this problem because they just don't care. We have switched to google docs, which is really clunky and painful when you have a lot of roleplayers. We want to use Discord. Everything else is perfect for our group EXCEPT THE CHARACTER LIMIT.

    I do not understand what the problem is. Just allow administrators to set their own character limit. Let them assign roles that are allowed a certain number of characters.

    Is it too much to even ask for a 4000 character limit??? Apparently so.

    I really wish I could make my own application for roleplaying. Everyone I know uses it for roleplaying. Even the game centric ones also contain roleplaying sections or fiction sections.

    I'm just so so so frustrated. I've been watching this thread update for YEARS. And everytime I make a new one it is just deleted as a duplicate. Ridiculous. A problem that was relevant in 2017 is still relevant now. It's just being completely dismissed.

    Please make the limit adjustable or remove it. This is stupid. At least let the servers be able to adjust the character limit?

     

    Regardless if Discord's intended use is or isn't for Rp. I think it's fair you should be able to TRY and make a few small changes and adjustments. I'm no master of code, but is it really that hard to do this?

    I actually really enjoy using it for streams, chatting AND role playing. Please keep in mind that there is a lot of people who likes your way of setting up categories in servers for things like role playing. Thank you for reading, hope you can answer my question soon.

    p.s. Please do not suggest using google docs thing. It's annoying to do that. I want my texts to be all in one post when I post a thread in an rp. I like to use it for keeping track of rp timelines with other admins, so they too can edit it, and to submit character applications for my members. But it is stupid to use it for the rps itself...

    I agree, I own a server and it is very annoying to split up messages. Maybe make it a role permission like "bypass word count", or maybe you could just type in the number for the role,

    This limit becomes even annoying when you add emotes. For example :regional_indicator_?: already takes up 22 characters so minigame developers and admin announcements have even fewer characters to work with. Please turn up the characters limit or treat emotes as 1 character
