"Contact user" character count not working correctly.

I tried to contact a user but the character count tells me “This can not be longer then 1000 characters”.

The total number of characters used in my message is 988 which is lower than the maximum.

Can anyone confirm this?

In most (if not all) cases on the Internet, the spaces (between the words) are counted as characters as well. Did you include those in your count?

Yep, I sure did :-)

Allrightie, then someone of the Admins will have to step in and I’m sure they will.

You’re going to have to reduce the size of your message. Or perhaps split it into two parts.

A lot of things count as characters. A line return actually counts as two characters typically (a carriage return and newline character are common in many operating systems.)

Some exotic unicode characters are double byte, and count as two as well.

Okay, thanks… I usually use UTF-8 when working and didn’t think of that.

As long as I know it is just me *BG* I can adapt ;-)

All the best.
