Size Limit - test thread

vbimport

#1

I[m trying to post a ? to the Newbie forum. I’m trying this short msg here to see if there might be a size limit within a forum. Moderator - feel free to delete this if you choose. In the Newbie forum, I’m getting “Page Cannot Be Displayed - Cannot find server or DNS error” everytime I try to pose my ? Let me try this shorter one here.


#2

A shorter msg here made it in! I’ll have to try trimming my explanation over in Newbie land.


#3

Well, it would have been better if posted in the Forum forum, if that makes sense :stuck_out_tongue:

But I think it was fair :slight_smile:


#4

Break it up into seperate posts, if needed.


#5

No size limit that I’m aware of.


#6

Perhaps the error message was generated due to a temporary server unavailability. If your question somehow becomes very long (like 1,000 lines of 80 ch. per line), write it on a text editor and post it using attachment.


#7

But there are no problems posting huge error reports from CD Burning software.


#8

I still cant post my safedisc guide due to a pictue amount limit :frowning:


#9

They aren’t that long. :slight_smile:


#10

Send it to me. I can host even a 1TB guide. :bigsmile:


#11

1TB??? That’s crazy!! Let’s try and make a 1TB guide to fill Kenny’s space;)


#12

If you just want to find out whether I really meant it, copy and paste just one 1MB guide to 1 milion folders and transfer to me. (If you have completed creating the 1TB guide folder, let me know!)


#13

There is a limit to the number of characters that can be used in a post.
Dunno for sure if it is different per forum.

If a post needs to be that long, you may consider 2 things:

  1. break it up into 2 or more posts (preferred)
  2. write it in notepad and attach the file to your post

#14

We can do it by making it a video guide at 60fps 1600x1200 res uncompressed AVI, and move the mouse rrrrreeeaaallll sssssllllooooowww.

Problem is my upload speed is 250kbps, and i have a 15GBp/m bandwith limit :frowning:


#15

Two tips:

2048*1536 is better.

Have multiple lines.

Good luck!


#16

I just realised I only have 450GB of space i could use fior this, crap :frowning:


#17

Get a few 500GB Maxtor drives. :slight_smile:


#18

The maximum number of characters allowed is 1,000,000
If your post is longer than that, you should receive a message that your post is too long and you should shorten it. You should not get a “page cannot load” error due to this.

I don’t know what the problem could be, had a similar problem when trying to edit certain thread titles (only 2 times of all my edits so far).

Perhaps there are special characters that are not accepted? You could try this with a different title and in a different forum. You can then leave me a message to which forum and with what thread title you would like the post should be moved and edited.


#19

OK, I missed the attachment method. Let me give that a try. I do see other posts (stickies, for example) that appear way longer than mine. But, let’s waste no more time on this. You’ve given me the answer, let me try.

(And I still don’t understand why a cut/paste with plain ASCII won’t fire…)


#20

For some reason, tonight, I tried it and it worked - without trimming or using the attachment. I stuck it in a better forum too - over in Nero-InCD.

Thanks to all who helped me.
