Posting problems

The Posting Problem in the Hepatitis C and Hepatitis Social communities appears to be HOW MUCH TEXT CAN BE POSTED. Unfortunately this problem limits the amount of text to such a small amount it is not enough to answer people's posts.

Until this is fixed by MedHelp I won't be posting.

Cheers!

Really???  I would think that a significant change limiting the amount of text  posted on the forum would be announced by MedHelp.   If something was posted - I missed it.  It's unfortunate if this is true, since limitations on text could impact some responses and sharing of knowledge.  Text takes a lot less space than advertising and is the real reason we are here.  I'd like to hear from one of the mods to why this was done, assuming this information is correct.  Very sad to hear.

It will be corrected on Monday.
Meanwhile my hands are tied. No sure why others can post? Maybe the don't use as many words as I do???

Back on Monday. I think I'll fly to Paris in the meantime and have a romantic weekend... ;-)

Ciao!

They've changed things. I noticed you can only post something with less characters than before.
No notice, none at all.

You can post half at a time or one third at a time if you don't mind breaking it up.
Hate to miss your posts, Hector.

Hey everyone -

We apologize for the lack of notice, but there was some confusion in a recent change that was made.  Currently, you can post under 2000 characters, and next week, it will go back to the previous limit.

You can still post, just not as long as you may have before.  You can also post something in parts if you need to.

it sure would be a loss for MedHelp and the rest of the community if Hector were to stop posting.

I think the techs ought to make it a priority.
Losing Hector's posts is no small thing for this forum.

  I hope the posting issue has been remedied, as Hector is such a huge asset to the community, and so many Heppers out here are comforted by the factual and compassionate imfo, which he is so well loved for.  It is important for us to have a role model like Hector, woot!

It appears that the problem has been addressed. I don't know how many character we're allowed but from the looks of Hector's post it appears we have more space than we did last week.

I wrote Hector under "write in vote" for president.   You have many, many supporters trolling about because of your contributions.  Eeee gads.  Fiesty!!!  Watch your blood pressure.   haha  (probably a mistake, hopefully)
