    Is it possible for you guys to add in a character count field for posting on someone's profile? Currently we are limited to only 420 characters and without a counter this can be frustrating replying to someone. I wrote a bunch of info for someone but had to scrap it as I kept hitting the limit and would get the error messages when I tried to submit. I eventually found a website that will count the characters for you but I don't feel we should need to do that if we had a simple character counter within the text field or somewhere. Ultimately I just scrapped the idea of replying on my profile and had to send them convos/PM instead.

    Adding a character count might be pretty difficult. While searching for options, I didn't find an add-on that would do this, but I did find an add on that would allow us to increase the size of a profile post!

    @Bruce If you get a chance, can you check this addon out and see if you think we can apply it?
