Well, I thought I wouldn't have to submit another ticket, but the BB-Code bug decided to strike me again, but this time, it comes up whenever I highlight somebody's name in color and/or add a member's skin with a clickable link inside next to their name. Is it possible for you guys to triple/double the amount of BB-Code used in forums so that my users can catch 'em all without any problems? Thanks again.

Alright then. Thanks, Paril! I knew I could count on you.

The limit is still 65k, but I reduced the amount of space that the table tags take.
If you run into this issue again, directly PM me and I'll figure out what else we can do to reduce your usage of space.

I see. I'm curious to know what the new BB-Code limit is so that I don't end up hitting it again. If I end up having to split the forum up into a second part, I think I might know exactly what to do to prevent this from ever happening.

Thanks glad it's working again! I had Paril do the coding for compressing the table size. We do think you're going to hit the limit again at some point and at this time, I'm unsure what we'll do to save you space. You may have to split up the thread at that time.

*Places the BB-Code script in* Oh my goodness, Cyprezz, you're a genius. Thank you so much for fixing this mess! What would we ever do without a site owner/developer like you (or even Paril)?

Side Note: If you thought the Sinnoh contest had a lot of Pokemon, just wait until the Unova version... *shudders*

Okay, please try again. I think you're still going to eventually run out of space simply because you have so many pokemon with long urls to images taking up space BUUUT I *think* you can fit your current full post in now.

Ah, I see. I wish you guys the best of luck on fixing the unnecessary BB-Code data bug, and I'm glad I could help by reporting such an issue.
Cyprezz said 2019-02-22 11:34:09
We're working on a long term fix. Currently our bbcode tables are generating a ludicrous amount of unnecessary data. It's taking up the majority of your space. I'm glad you reported this. I'll let you know when the fix is live. Thanks for your patience.

Alright then. I'm going to place a technical difficulties image in my backup BB-Code forum for now. It's just going to be very hard to sacrifice some creativity after making four of these contest forums, but if that's how it must be done, so be it.

You hit the 65k hard limit in the database field.
We're not going to increase that hard limit but I can see a way to greatly reduce the amount of space your threads take up. I'll talk with Paril about it.
Cyprezz said 2019-02-21 17:40:10
Okay you can change it back.
Peridot XJ9 said 2019-02-21 16:04:32
Ah, sorry about that. I placed a shorter BB-Code set for the time being just so that it wouldn't look like crud to others. The real one should be placed in now for you to look at.

Cyprezz set status to Accepted, assigned Cyprezz.
Hmm, did you somehow fix it? I'm not seeing the issue right now.
