Hey all. I'm thinking about removing the character count on posts. What ae your thoughts?

It may be nice to use Pjuu as somewhat of a blog. All your public posts are available at pjuu.com/<username>;

    Hi @mukt your old comment hasn't been forgotten about. I will do it so it takes you to the original post and then automatically finds and highlights the comment.

    Markdown is a good idea!

    @Ant I have. Multiple times. I get two choices after that :

    1. Edit the post.
    2. Push some content into comments, giving it a twitter thread like appearance.

    Yet, character limit gives a microblogging medium its character.
    If you, @Joe, want to go for propper blogging, Pjuu would need stuff like markdown for formatting as well. And fulfilling my old request - of giving a url to each comment, will be great.

    @pieltu text storage isn't a lot. Its the image storage that's a thing. But we still have 100x the space at the same cost

    *spamming intensifies*

    I guess, if Pjuu has enough storage space, it would be ok.
    You may implement some spamming prevention, though, just to make sure, nobody get's the idea to write a little program posting the prompt of cat /dev/urandom in a post ;)

    Hey @stolensoul thanks for the input. We already collapse posts on the feed if they go over a certain number of lines 😀

    As long as they are collapsed on the general feed, I don't see how it could be a problem, on the contrary
