Like me, I have a long bio. I think you should have more space for a bio because now when I try to write stuff and save it, it never gets saved. What do you think?

64,000 bytes isn't long enough?

Do you really think someone is going to go through and read all of it.

I think what would be nicer is a 'Show all' button, because it is annoying to have to scroll all the way down.

The current limit is good enough.

I agree. Maybe, if it's over a certain length, we'll truncate it with a "view all" link or something.

When looking at my own about... that might be handy! LOL

But I think the option to split it up into several parts is better suited for people (me... *gulps*) with an urge to make up an extensive sheet of text! =)

Current limit is quite fine.

More so, I often wonder why it was necessary to put all that stuff on a profile. All those tests, bunnies, guns, song lyrics, random.... stuff that is random, and that I am just going to scroll past, if my computer would let me.
And, as a mod, I generally like the shorter abouts better. Is easier to get to the messenger and leave my request/warning/help.
(Funnily enough, the ban-button is muuuuch easier to get to, than going down and warn someone. Good thing I am only lazy with backgrounds or art in general.)

Cen, a short-cut, if I may ... when you load the user profile, hit your End key to jump to the bottom of the page, and then PageUp to get to the comment area. )

I mentioned the "click to see more" link idea to Larry, no feedback yet. Maybe he's still trying to load that profile page (or reading it)

The only bad thing about that is that like Mrdaycee's about, you have to press the pg down key multiple times to get to the bottom/comments area. Having "show all" would make this easier as you can only see a bit of the about and just about see the comments section without scrolling.

Also a "show all" button would be nice to those who don't make the link to go straight to their messengers. Another idea is that this link will automatically be put on one's about, this was discussed before. But Either one or even both would suit me.

I know, but sometimes my computer lag so much that I have to press End several times to get down there, because it only loads a small portion of the about at the time.
My computer is an oldie.

Do not worry, I am one of the mods the other mods dislike, because I have to make sure people understand what they are doing wrong and why, and not just ban them for what they did.

I did something like it on my profile once. Uploaded all my crap to a deviantART journal, and posted a link.

Larry thinks we should shorten bio's to 1kb (1,024 characters), or allow a slightly longer length but only show the first few hundred bytes or something.

You know what I was thinking? Do you think it would be okay if I made another account and put my bio on there?
