Effective immediately, we will be limiting the length of all posts made on our Pulse feature to 2,000 characters or less.

We have started the limit at 5,000 characters and will be reducing it to 2,000 within the next two days as we monitor the feature and its usage.

This is being done to ensure users do not have to scroll through exceedingly long pulse posts as is the case now.

No other changes have been made to the feature. We hope you appreciate and understand the need for this change.

Thank you

P.S. For your reference, this entire forum post is about 530 characters long so 2,000 characters should be enough for everyone to convey their message.

Long pulses are annoying, thank you. But instead of a character limit, why not cut it off after a certain limit and add a "show more" button to view the rest?

2000 characters is still a lot of space, but if you do a "show more" button, we can have 5000 without annoying our friends. It pleases everyone, I think.



And it doesn't stop this kinda shenanigans http://prntscr.com/7xsqbw

This might have been a smarter answer.

We have already implemented this solution (show more) for our mobile and web (still in beta) platforms and that limits the viewable message to 500 characters. We will be adding that limitation in the near future as well.

We still do not want exceedingly long messages being posted to our service and therefore will be limiting the messages to 2,000. As we monitor the usage, we may reduce that limit further.

Thank you

Not the right comparison considering twitter posts are limited to 140 characters - quite different from 2,000.

Can I ask why you don't want users posting long pulses? What bother is to IMVU if users express themselves in such a way?

I'd say it is an accurate comparison especially with the fact that you may end up further decreasing this limit.

Honestly, if you're posting something that takes more than 2000 characters, you probably don't need to be posting, because it's probably a rant, lol

OMG.. I SOOOO LOVE YOU RIGHT NOW!!

No more crazy long pulses.

Will there be an expand option at some point?

So like if someone did use all 2,000 characters.. people still wouldn't have walls of text to sift through?

(copy pasted from my pulse lol)

How many characters are needed to advertise a new product or badge donation, though?

For example, the following is only 207 characters:

New badge in need of donations!
Badge name:
Img link: blkjxhggkdjfghkdjghkdjghkjdsgh_fkjghkfjghksjgh.com
Min donation:
Incentives: (image or link)
kdjhfkdjfghkdfhgkfdjghksdfhgldfghldfsghlsdfjhglsfh

Thanks!

And this one, 246 characters:

New products in shop! Pretty thing set with 4 colors! Woo! Comes with matching shoes/accessories! Gifting the first three to comment!

(imvu link) dkjghldhglshglskfhgldfkhglkghldfkghldfkhgldfkhgldfkhgldfkhgldfkhgldfkhgldfkhgl

xoxo please repulse

No need for pulses to be obnoxiously long, and if we run out of room we can always continue in the comments.

Just to give people an idea of 2,000 characters long.. I used an online character counter and this is exactly 1,999 characters.

i don't believe this change makes much of a difference, though i do like the idea of clicking on the read more feature.

might i suggest that in the drop down there be an option to hide posts without having to flag or unfriend them, just a thought Idea
