    Change PM limit!!

    Ok, I was just replying to a PM, in which I needed to post some code. When I had finished typing it all out, I was greatly dismayed to find out that you are only allowed 2000 characters in a PM. I think the limit should be bumped up to 10000, just like a regular thread post. Thanks,

    It used to be even less, Pete bumped it up to 2000. If he were to go any higher, he'd probably have to drop the number you are allowed to store down a bit, to compensate for the difference.

    I reject your reality and substitute it with my own!

    Well, I would certainly have no problems with that. Then agian, I don't get a whole lot of PM's in the first place.

    This is also why there is a check message length.

    There is even the same link below a regular post field.

    Very cool, I agree. However, the guy I was sending the code to seems to be in ??Europe?? (a guess, based on his active forum time). I don't see any way to access code posted before half an hour or so, and with him being on the other side of the world, it would be long gone by the time he checks it. I still think the limit should be raised, to perhaps 4 or 5 thousand characters.
