Characters Limit

    I fully support this idea. If you worry that it may be an issue, maybe give people an optional conceal textwall button, kind of like how we have to click for spoilers.

    No thx

  • PiggyPlex

    I'd prefer the exact opposite: being able to change the MAXIMUM number of characters in a channel to prevent spam or just for normal uses, like counting channels.

  • k9lego

    This would be nice for advertisement channels. The Minecraft Discord server's "#looking-to-play", for example, could benefit greatly from this!

    Would like to see Nitro Boosting accounts to have 3000-5000 Limit, you'll get rich Discord ;)

  • BlueTechnician

    Couldn't someone abuse this? They could put any amount of lines with random letters and copy/paste it a bunch...

  • StriderIT

    I wholeheartedly agree with the fact that there should be a server setting to disable the limit! It's pretty annoying to RP with 2000 characters per message!

    i sometimes have super long conversations with people where we end up sending like whole pages of text to each other, but because of the character limit we have to like awkwardly select all cut and re-copy paste in everything one chunk at a time, and its pretty annoying. but not that bad. extending the limit could be something for nitro users.

    This would be great as a lot of roleplayers get frustrated by the character limit. Having to post part of a reply before you're finished is not only spoilers but if you have to go back and fix something to make sense it's a hassle.

  • Adrian Malhiers

    I actually agree with this as when I'm creating the rules and info for my server there is not enough space to do so and I have to make it into different parts.

    I had the same thing up here a few days ago, rather than give any feedback (to me or you) they just "merged" my ticket with yours. Pretty sure they just copied comments over and discarded my original post. It's almost like this is something they should have implemented a long time ago.


    Plus, this ticket is 23 days old, way to shut me up Discord. 

    My post:

    "Right now Discord has a max character limit. This is something that should be controlled by server creators in their settings. It is understood that Discord is trying to prevent spam or flooding. By making it a setting controlled by us, the end users, you enable us to handle any spam/flooding ourselves without telling us how many words we can use.


    It summary: It's my server, I should be allowed to paste as many characters as I want, right?




    Their response: "Hi there! This suggestion is the same as 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."

    Ignore the downvotes, they're not real. Good idea.

  • Residays

    Oof, I didn't even realize this was downvoted until you commented and I got an e-mail.

  • Van EN.KI

    They're STILL merging them here.

    it's not just an arbitrary limit, it's to do with the impact it has on discord's computers
  • Bibliothekar

    Just split your message into multiple ones? Especially in roleplaying servers, I'd consider the current limit a good thing so other players have a chance to react instead of being squashed by a novel.

  • Aridolomo

    Inceased Character limit would be really pleasant, I am way too often running into the character limit wall, often it is not an issue to break it up, although it is utterly annoying and discord does a terrible job at spacing, especially when you want an empty row in there. The moments it hurst though is when someone opens up with something personal and you write a fairly emotional response to it, only to see "2000 character limit reached"... Those just hurt

  • raychu

    Being able to change a channel's setting to adjust the maximum character limit would be very useful. That can ensure people won't abuse the feature as it will be easier to moderate it if it's limited to certain few channels of the admin's choosing. And it'll be very useful for us writers, indeed.

  • themainc

    Using Discord for RP is difficult because of the low character maximum. Typically on my RP server, we have to break a standard reply into three fully maxed out messages, so our paragraphs are I terrupted by an ugly "_" otherwise discord will smash the replies together with no line drop. And that's not even counting the long replies.

    Would really appreciate discord allowing server admins to set a character maximum at least five times the length of the current maximum (November 2019) and ideally, though probably stretching, twenty times.

    I also appreciate the idea raised by @Csembr of being ably to hide the walls of text behind a 'spoiler' alert (but one specifically for extra long replies)

  • HuntingFighter [SM3LL]

    Agreed, especially annoying also for bot coding as character Limits also apply on editing and moving down text is shit :/

  • EmberVoices

    I agree that it makes sense to be able to modify the character limits, but I won't be surprised if the reason for the upper limit has to do with server load or something...


  • Craig

    Even if Discord won’t change this limit, adding a character count total to the interface would help us know when we are approaching the maximum, so we could know when to “send” and start a new message.

  • Sam

    Discord should change this limit back to no limit for DM's. Channel limitations are understandable. It was one of the "greats" with regard to talking to a friend, days apart, having several conversations "all in one", typing out as much as you need to without worrying about how many characters you're typing. 

    I'd love to see the complaints that others have submitted about messages being too long (especially when you can just block a person).  

    Now it seems, Discord dev's would rather us type it all out in Word (in order to do what we used to do and let it just flow) for a word/character count and then cut and paste it in blocks so we can get our message across without "size" limitations....

    Yes I know there is now a character count in chat.  It still stops you from getting carried away chatting about things and then causes the whole - oh shit, gotta cut and paste some of this to/from doc etc.,  as just happened to me.

    Might as well go back to talking to my friends on Messenger or Whatsapp to catch up. It was great to be able to do it in Discord, and preferred.

    What was the reason for implementing this again?  Consideration?  

    I never thought I would see such limitations from Discord - until now, being a user pretty much from day 1 for one reason or another, I've always thought of Discord as a liberator of all other VOIP app protocols - total freedom.  This is just text and there are way too many other options available.

    +1 to this suggestion. We need to increase the limit.
