Screw it! I try to edit my debate, it says that it is over 6000 characters, so I try to change it, but it does not! How can I fix this stupid error?

...it's not a new policy... it's just that DDO was built on an ancient burial ground, and that means the spirits of old rise again to cause us problems sometimes- Airmax1227

I solved my own problem by clicking edit, and erase what I wrote before the pop-up came out.

Would be better to present this to a mod instead of making a forum post, although you can always bypass the character limit by making a google doc and writing there.

Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself. -Friedman

Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program. - Friedman

Character limit violations are not usually tolerated. Posting your argument elsewhere, pretty much automatically sacrifices conduct, and often arguments.

Oh, that's curious.

I usually only analyze the first 10,000 characters or whatever the character limit is, and ignore the remainder.

When opening a debate you may of course set special rules to allow Google Docs or just about anything else.

I'm enough of an old horse here, that I remember when someone was starting low character limit debates, and using pictures of text as a Gish Gallop tactic to try to win, then cried a bunch when voters did not fall for it.
