    I agree, I made the same request

  • TheDemonDude

    I agree.

    We are a writers group sending written stories to one another for the others to read. Right now, we use Skype, but that's far from pleasant. 

    The 2000 character limit in Discord is quite a trip-wire for us to switch over.
    Skype sports a 25000 character limit, though it stops properly functioning or sending properly if you keep that limit.
    20k however, is fine.

    Perhaps you can see into this?
    Not many send that amount, but to a fiction-writing-club, and perhaps people who code game addons, people giving instructions for for instance crafts and hobbies, write game-guides as well as servers filled with roleplayers, I can imagine a higher amount of characters is a godsent gift. :)

    I would already be happy with 10k characters. 20k characters would be AMAZING.

    Right now, I'm avoiding Discord for my hobby as a writer/roleplayer.. but also a gamer writing game-guides for friends. =S

    This is a feature, I would like to see implemented. It should only be a moderator feature.

  • Fassa

    Please remove that limit. At least for administrators

    Its is Hugely annoying.

     It is the one worse thing that Discord has vs Slack.

  • Sky

    The feature should be made into a moderation choice where servers can decide to turn it on and off. 

  • Leyssa

    I agree too, this limit is really annoying. Particularly in DM...


    Add to this the fact that your text isn't even cut at the 2000 character limit, but discord lets you type even more just to tell you "sorry, you exceeded the 2k limit" when you try to send your message, and you have to just figure out WHERE was the 2k limit by yourself... It's absolutely ridiculous. At the very least, cut the text properly so that we know where we have to stop, please. u_u

  • Bel

    I would love this as well, for the exact same reasons! I run a group RP server and have several private servers with friends for other roleplay and being able to make certain channels exempt from the character limit would be amazing.

  • JenoJams

    SAME I have to cut my replies into like 3 pieces, and it's a pain Dx

  • Kewlin

    As a bandaid fix I suggest typing into notepad++ and then copying it in one piece at a time, but I feel your pain dude.

  • Chokovit

    Yeah this is important for me too! I write a lot and I typically do my writing at night after my co-developer has gone to work, he works night shifts so by the time I finish my writing for the night and want to share it with him, he's still at work. I can't send him the document because he won't be able to open it. When I was on skype I could just copy past up to about 3 pages of text but the 2000 word limit really gets in the way of that.

  • MemeTheory

    Yes, however; there are other ways you can bypass and make server rules. You can use the API and make a bot that sends an embed or multiple embeds to the specified channel (by ID). Or, you can post it as a Google doc if you plesse.

    I do like the idea of a 3000 message character limit, but I doubt it'd get added because there are so many loopholes.

  • kuryakin

    Please listen to us, staff of Discord!

    I roleplay on Discord. Me and my writing partner have 1.5k word posts and it is so annoying to have to split it up! Could you please make this an option that can be turned off and on? 

  • Echo(Hibiki)

    It really is a huge problem. The minuscule file size limit is already bad enough.  I convey to my players details that just don't fit in 2,000 characters! If it was around 5,000 I could see it being a bit more flexible, but as a DM i sometimes type out messages upwards of 10,000 characters, and my players find it irritating that they have to stop reading for me to fix the issue by splitting up a paragraph that's meant to be read as one piece.
    Whats more when i want to keep my DM Notes on certain players organized, the 2,000 character limit really busts everything. If Dargon wants to hook up with the tavern owner, and i have to add that to his relationship notes for the 600th time, it doesn't help to have his entry all the way at the top of the log when the rest of his info is at the bottom.

    TL;DR: The character limit should be removed. No limit is better than the restricted 2,000.

  • Tuevon

    I really wish that this could be bypassed. I understand that they're trying to restrict server load, but exempting this for Administrators or exempting this if slowmode is enabled makes sense. Additionally, making it so server owners/Administrators could modify this setting on their server or remove it altogether would also be good as well.

    TL;DR—The limit is highly restrictive in some cases.

  • Graysongdl

    Server admins should be able to remove character limits, or type their own custom limits for each role. And just remove the character limit in DMs. If someone's sending spam in DMs, you can block them anyway.

  • Bryce

    I would like to add that I would also like to see a higher limit. I understand that being too high would be bad for spam or people abusing it to transfer data in base64. What I would do is add a new permission on text channels that allows 10000 or 20000 character messages with admins always being able to make them and them always being available in DMs.

    I run a technical discord relating to computer networking. Often, people are troubleshooting issues that they are having and they need to post traceroutes, log messages, whois queries, and all manor of other important information. Because these are not traditional paragraph based messages there is often no easy place to cut the message without breaking the flow. Once someone has pasted one of these outputs into discord and seen the over 2000 char message, it is unclear where in the message they need to cut it to make it fit.

    I know that we could post things on pastebin or google drive or dropbox or many other places but when troubleshooting tech, you need to be able to see the log right there and not have to go elsewhere. A message should be able to take up at least two thirds to the entire message viewing area.

  • Bryce

    Any chance you could add this as a comment to this other thread. Maybe if we have one big thread with a lot of comments, it will get there attention that it really needs to be fixed.

  • Dash Lambda

    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.

  • regtable

    Hey as much as I think this would be an awesome idea think about those messages from self bots that aren't asked for being limited to 2000 chars as it is is too much so giving them the power to send an unlimited size message could make for a very very bad time. Like they may just send a hex encoded video file as a message which probably would be in excess of a trillion characters. I'd be pissed. But your specific request I.e a fandom fanfic or short novel would be nice. Maybe have the option to allow users to send you higher rates than auto on? So I could say your allowed to send be a spiel 10k chars long as I trust your not spamming me..

  • lengo
    I think this would be a really nifty feature although Discord probably has a reason for having a character limit. If there is really no reason though, I think this would be a great addition!
  • Avis⁷ 🔥🔥

    As a gamedev, this limit is very frustrating. If i'm trying to send someone i'm working with a chunk of code, i need to either create a text file, and send that or send it as several pieces.
    converting to text files is annoying and should be pointless, this is a text-based chat! 
    Splitting it up is very annoying, because I can't tell how many characters 2000 is. So i have to guess and check to get it right. if someone wants to copy the text back out they get "So and so said at 1:11:" inter spliced in. 

    I'm a paying nitro user, and i don't understand how you can hive me a 50 meg filesize limit, but restrict my messages to just 2000 characters. What is that, 6 kilobytes of data? This feature is exceedingly annoying to me and should be removed immediately. At least make it an option for people in there settings for DMs, and a server setting. This is legitimately my only issue with discord, please fix!

  • Remedy

    @Avis I mean; there is

    You can use that.

  • Alexis
    Why would you need that?
  • Regex

    Alexis, maybe someone wants a channel for long rants, or sharing stories, but wants links disabled and file sharing.

    This would be a cool feature that can't be abused that badly as it wouldn't flood notifications

  • StevenCarson

    I hope that someday this limit will disappear, because it makes it harder to send long stories.

  • ggoas

    @regtable: even if you got a trillion character message, that may be super annoying, but it is not harmful.

    the worst part is that there is no character counter, so at some point, the text gets cut off when you paste it, but it cuts it off at more than 2,000 characters, so you remove a few more characters and still get an error about the limit. it is a poor user experience.

    server operators should have the option to increase or disable the limits, period.

  • Avis⁷ 🔥🔥

    @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.)

  • Bryce

    @remedy and @Avis, I think the main issue is that while there are many websites and other systems to allow exchanging large amounts, we just don’t want to. In many cases it would just be much easier if we could send the messages in Discord

  • Avis⁷ 🔥🔥

    at very least make it an option for paying nitro users, like, come on.


  • Brownie

    Yes if we had it to where we could at least disable it that would be great. I have been trying to post rules but they go over the character limit and its very annoying. So I think this would be a great addition to discord.
