The minimum character count is 4. This does not include any (multi)quoted text.

If there is still a problem please PM me and I can have a deeper look.

I'm sure the Techies here can fix the problem.

Who wants to bet on how long it takes? I'd say within 2 days.

It didn't use to be 4, it was less for a bit. I could use ~ to create a character to post a pic.

It used to be more than 5 and Janet fiddled with it about 2 yrs ago. She got it dropped to 1 or 2 characters so that you could reply with a smiley.

Are we having issues with flamers Frank?

The smile emote shows up as "" (without the quotes) in the app for DC. All of the emotes have a character representation. Maybe that's why they work and +1 doesn't? They are all actually "seen" by the posting algorithm as four or more characters.

It was changed for a couple of reasons.

It does help keep people on their toes when we make changes. And smilies are made up of a code that is usually longer : lol : for instance.

But when I did my PM I had a whole paragraph, and it was most definitely outside the quote of the original message. I didn't report it then because I thought it was just me!
