If your post is less than 10 chars then it is probably worthless.

How many "+1" or "Me too" or "LOL" posts do we really need?

I agree with you, all those kinds of posts are pretty much worthless, but there are plenty of responses where you don't need to say much that aren't worthless where the 10 character limit is just an annoyance.
It's especially annoying during races, where you want to just tap out a short reply but have to go back and make sure its 10 characters.


Maybe Susan or one of the other mods could tell us if there is any chance at all of the limit going away?

I think the only thing that annoys me is that when I have to post something short during a race I have to count the characters. Imho it would be a lot less annoying if, for example, the submit button would dynamically appear only once you have typed 10 characters. It would be more straightforward and less stressful when you're in a hurry.

If I could write a post with only three characters, I would write a big LOL at the people who think CN is going to listen to their requests for improvements to the forum software.
