    Default Social groups...

    Not to be a curmudgeon of all things changed here at the Village , however the postings in the social groups (or at least the garden group) are limited to only 1000 characters now. Will it be staying that way? I only ask because I just made a post about planning for this years garden and had to redo it, and I'm not kidding, 7 times for it being too long. It's very hard to try to cram everything about planning your garden for a new year into 1000 characters. But I succeeded! I just had to leave out all the extra information that helped me explain it better.

    It's fine in all honesty, but will the character limit be remaining at 1000? If so is there a way to make it notify you once you've hit the character limit so you don't waste time continuing to type your post and then waste an hour having to keep redoing it as many times as I did? I wouldn't mind the limit so much if there was a way to know when you've hit and so you stop typing lol.

    I'll check on that. It wasn't set to that intentionally. Thanks for pointing it out. It wasn't on my list of fixes. It'll take a few days for us to iron everything out. Thanks again.

    I raised it to 10k, let me know if you guys find that's still too low.
    I also will be adding categories for groups. Uncategorized doesn't seem very appealing.

    Sara you are my Thank you so much for looking into it and increasing it, I'm sure that will be more than enough. I was fine with the limit, I just wondered if there was a way to know when you got to it, but hey I'll take a bigger limit with a smile.

    Thanks again!
