&starseed If you are saying that half of the 406 characters that I had in that first paragraph were spaces you would be assuming that every single one of my words were only one character long. Meaning I would have only two or three words to work with. I can't see me building a sentence out of the words I and A. Also there really isn't a place in the rules saying that spaces aren't counted as characters. True I wouldn't go filling a whole post with spaces but I don't really think that they are nit-picking as much as you think they are.

By the way when you said 158 words did you mean characters? Because we only have to worry about characters. If I could find one word that was 400 characters long I would be able to post it as a post. (probably just for laughs though.)

But more than half those characters are spaces, you only posted 158 actual words.

I agree, 400 characters doesn't really look like much.

I recently joined the site thinking that the limit was 400 WORDS. I didn't even have a problem with that, since a lot of other sites can require 700 words or more. When I verified 400 characters, it was hard to believe. This comment is already over 200 characters.

OH! I guess I read the rules wrong... I read it as 400 words, not characters. I would never report anyone but I've thought plenty of times "that seems kinda short".

They only mean 400 letters.... I type 97 wpm... thats kind of like asking a 8 year old to type an essay. It will pass if you put effort into it lol.
