    Apparently our location in our profiles doesn't have a character limit, so someone could have lines and lines of text as their location.

    Not to point fingers but

    Awe but long locations make for great EoF topics.

    It's not really bothering you that much.

    I think it should be allowed to stay.

    Likewise. Unless it starts causing server performance issues or causing problems for some users, I (personally) think it ought to stay as a funny little quirk. I think something like Zantigo's should be roughly the length that's not frowned upon. I think anything majorly above that should be means for action though.

    My silly 2 cents.

    It bothers me and that alone is reason enough for it to be changed.

    Anyone else's viewpoint on this matter is irrelevant. :angry:

    Yeah, I was gonna post the same thing. It is very annoying and looks really... odd... as it stretches the post longer than the actual content.

    Not bothering anybody? I disagree. This doesn't bother anybody just like a giant glaring spotlight shining into your living room from your neighbors yard doesn't bother anybody.

    Edit: actually, it seems there's a setting for it, easy fix :lol:

    Thanks.
    Though you'll still have to inform people who had it long before you changed it - for it doesn't cut it off automatically, it just stops people entering long locations in the future.
