Option to change the 2000 character limit




  • Official comment
    Hi there! This suggestion is the same as https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360031093812 so in an effort to keep duplicates out and keep everything neat and tidy, we're going to merge this ticket into that suggestion. This ticket will be deleted automatically after a week.

    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 disagree.
    Google docs would become a big mess with multiple people writing on the same pages, while being in different locations. It doesn't give a good option to talk outside the rp, share picture, share memes etc. Google docs also become way too laggy the more pages are made. And by now we're probably exceeded 100 pages by now looking at how much we've written inside Discord.
    I think discord is a perfect way to do rp's with big groups. We have the server split up into channel categories, telling us what region it is in the world we rp in. Those categories open up to several different location channels. This way people can rp in a certain location with eachother and they won't have to worry about other people chatting their own story in between. No one chatting through eachother.
    Next to that we have OOC channels where people can post the regular things, talk to eachother, post pictures, art and memes. We even have plotting channels, which help discussing the stories we create.
    If Discord adds the option for the server owner and possibly mods to choose which channel has a character limit or not, people can post their rp stories without having to cut it all up into parts, similar like adding a slow mode or not. It's not that dificult for them to do.

    Here is an example of the channels I have created for the rp server. Discord is the perfect platform to divide people into one on one stories or switching locations etc. It's just the character limit that is bugging us.

    You should use something like Google Docs to share large text documents over Discord, as Discord really isn't cut out for this in my opinion, which is reinforced by your complaints above.

    To be honest with you, the 2,000 Character Limit is there for a reason. Also, 2,000 Characters is a lot of words/numbers/symbols. There are many ways you can bypass this such as Notepad Files, Google Docs, Microsoft Word Files, Multiple Messages, etc. Once again, good idea but the feature is there for a reason and we don't think it should be removed.

    Also - Discord isn't made just for Text RP. You can't just make suggestions for one thing, you have to remember that other people might not enjoy your suggestion. Anyway, you have a good one.
