If people have such an issue with long pulses, you probably don't need to be on pulse to begin with.

You have the option to Report As Spam so that the "spamming" pulses are taken away off of your feed.

This limitation is seriously hurting us people who use Pulse as a way to Advertise our businesses/shops/etc.

I can express so much (in great detail) for my business and for my sorority, that now I can't because of having limitations.

5,000 characters was wonderful.


Pulse is not just for people who like to spam long pulses. It is for everyone. Why shouldn't people be forced to learn brevity. The way pulse was, all the adverts were overrunning it and spoiling for people who actually wanted to chat a bit and tell people things about their day.

Something that I would like to add to what Karen has mentioned.. because she brought up a good point.

We do have groups pages too..

People that want to advertise their group, shop, family, sorority, etc. Might possibly want to learn about the quick hook tactics of advertising.

Short, Sweet, and Tasty enough to catch the reader's eye.. I can't speak for everyone but when I see a wall of text advertising things.. my first thought isn't "Oooo.. this looks interesting".. my honest thought is ~~> Rolling Eyes

It's like the person said at a car dealership "I have about 2 to 3 minutes to catch and keep your eye."

I am honestly hoping IMVU cuts the limit in half or they keep it as is and have an expand to see more.

When the ability to post blogs on one's home page was discontinued by IMVU, I moved to blogging in the Pulse. I've met some of the best conversationalists and deepest thinkers via the Pulse, mentally challenging individuals who help make IMVU the positive experience that it mostly can be. I know that I've also touched lives and been a catalyst of thought by the number of letters I've received from people who were not in bad, real time relationships but simply bored. Many were ready to toss away 20 or more good years for that charming, unemployed, thrice divorced alcoholic living in his mother's basement with whom they interacted daily upon this site. It's a dose of realism and awareness raising that is needed in this pixel perfect world, where the lines between escapist fantasy and real life at times too easily blur. This is the second instance in my 68 months on this site where free speech is being limited or restricted. If one does not desire to read long posts, skip them!It's really not that difficult to do. Let's face it, many folks simply do not enjoy reading...

Scrolling past them would be ideal if they had built into the coding a system like a browser where you could click and just scroll down.

It should be about coming up with a system that works for everyone.. while causing the least amount of issues.

Personally.. I would love to see it go with like others have explained..

Show 3 lines or so and add an expand to see more.

----------

While it is true that IMVU did get rid of the Blog on the page.. the frame can still be used for blogging.

It's just going online and finding some coding to make it do what it's intended.

yush, again, no need to do a limit on pulse. just make a 'show more' button when it goes more than 10 lines. with this limit of characters, that will become a problem with multiple pulses to stretch out the first one that can be five pulses about one subject, maybe more. that will be spamming. blahhh.

don't limit the characters used on pulse, just add a 'show more' button. blahhh.

This a good change, I hated the long pulse post most of it I found to be spam, or rant or just some idiocy pulse, 2000 chars is more than enough to express
yourself, or advertise. I what I would like to know, if user post 2000 chars of pulse can he/she then continue on with another pulse post say pt 2 and start again with 2000 chars and so on..or will they be stop and have to wait X amount of mins or hours?

From what I have seen.. there isn't any delay with doing a reply to a pulse message just made to make a Part II. Nor is there a delay in making a whole new posting for a Part II.

Though one user did make mention on another thread.. it seems there is a limit of like 8 pulses in a minute.

Throws out ideas that I know IMVU and everyone else will just completely ignore....

1. No character limit, instead allow for 3-5 lines of text, placing in a "read more" link or "expand" option.
(This will have pulse looking uniform and you won't have to scroll to get past one post)

2. Limiting the amount of pulse posts a person can post per day. This could be done in two ways.
a) EVERYONE (including VIPs) are limited to 3-5 posts per day.
b) Reg users are limited to 3-5 posts per day and VIP members 5-10 posts.
(This will DRASTICALLY cut down on spam)

3. Mute button - this would be great for those who don't want to delete their friends but don't want to view their pulse either (maybe it's due to RP or advertising, or whining, whatever). MUCH better option than "I deleted you because I was tired of your pulse posts" which sounds childish.

4. Delete button - something where we can DELETE replies to our pulse posts. I HATE when folks reply to something that has NOTHING to do with the catalog and they are hijacking another post to advertise their catalog. I don't want to report the post because it doesn't warrant it... I just want to delete it.

5. A Creator/Advertising tab for Creators/Artists to advertise their catalogs and/or services, and allow them to have pictures (using their photo albums) and descriptions of their products (even set it for AP so that GA users can't see the AP stuff). Also allowing for a follow/subscribe, so folks can keep up with their favorite Creators, without having to add people we NEVER talk to -- some of us are REALLY picky about who we add as friends.

6. A like/love button! Something that is already happening in the photostream anyway. Would also like to see a share button, so we don't have to copy and paste we just share it and the original poster isn't lost.

I don't want to make pulse a horrible experience for everyone, I want to see it as being a good experience, where people can EXPRESS themselves and/or advertise without being limited in doing so.

There are PLENTY of alternatives that doesn't result in limiting characters and causing folks to spam pulse even more. And I'm sure many have more ideas than what I just listed; but since ideas fall on deaf ears...

That isn't all true O.O

1. I could easily live with this one.

2. Maybe if the limit was at least a double digit (Min. 15)

3. YES!!

4. YES!!

5. One the fence but can see the benefits.

6. For all that is Holy.. NO. Nothing irks me more than someone clicking a Like button and never explaining why they like it. Kind of like on here people will click a choice on a poll and never say why they went the way they went.

#6 -- yeah but you know many may click their choice on the poll and not say anything due to some of the backlash and out-right degrading that does go on -- I mean just by how heated the Opt-Out of Animated Badges and Flagging Badge Canvases has proven that most will vote and not say why. Same for anything that has to do with AP. I'm used to folks favoriting stuff I post in deviantART and not saying why they like it, which is fine I'm cool with that... so if folks want to like something and not reply that's cool I'm also up for "You cannot like this until you have commented on it" as well.

I like the general idea of #6.. sadly I can see this stuff happening with it.

(Like / Dislike button doesn't appear unless something is typed)

Person types a single letter.
