    I think I used 200 in my next message. :mrgreen:


    Thanks for increasing Chase (or whoever did it). :)
    Does that count for posts to, or just pm's?

    There is a character limit that is set by default on posts, too. I believe it defaults to 10,000 as well, but can be changed if need be.

    Yeah, two completely different settings. I guess they (developers) assumed that most PMs would be relatively short. I'm sure they will be happy to know that you blew that idea out of the water! :lmao:
