Description

Recently I uploaded a mod to this site, and for some reason, the comments section has been getting a lot more messy than all my others.
Normally, this wouldn't be a problem, right?

People have been posting (invalid, might I add) crash logs left right and center, which makes it super frustrating to look through the comments section. It'd be nice if a character limit for comments was introduced, to avoid people posting these giant walls of text.
Hopefully it'd also encourage users to use Pastebin.

EDIT: Adding a "Read More" button for longer comments could probably be more beneficial than my initial suggestion.

Comments (14)

Read More is/will be implemented on comments soonish. We've rolled it out in wall posts, so it makes sense to do it on comments as well.

What is it and when was it added? From my knowledge, this feature did not exist when this was proposed.

It would be very good to add a "Read More" button, yes!

The read more is very interesting, because I don't want pmc to have character limit like twitter or miiverse xD

I like the idea about a "Read More" button!

Certainly a good idea. I wish the crash logs for Minecraft weren't so big, though. I lightened the crash logs for MCSkin3D for this very reason, lol.

maybe you could do it like youtube comments, after a certain character limit has been reached everything after that will be collapsed (read more button)

Collapsable comments/comment chains maybe if they're long but I'd hate for there to be a character limit.
