  • I agree! It is frustrating! Plus, if you try to take a character or two out, it goes nuts and cuts out some other part of what you wrote. Some times, all you have to do is take off a few of the HTML tags or what ever the full editor adds. Its adds more than needed, especially at the end. You don't really need the end tags.

    I always have to copy my text before I hot the reply button. That way I can re edit my original text if it gets rejected for being too many characters. I think some upgrades are in order since cafe mom has grown so large!! Its time they catch up with the other popular web sites and give us more to work with.

  • Oh and a "edit" button, and spell check when writing posts would be nice too. Right now full editor is only for answers, and that's a drag.

  • It teaches us discipline and to make decisions on what's important to say. You can always type 2 posts. That will give you more characters to type.
