The title of the ZN4game(etc) feedback has broken the feedback page, because it has no spaces...

Developers - please either limit the characters allowed for feedback titles from within the website code, or force a break after a certain number of characters.

And, if it's possible (sorry, Eolindel, you won't be able to fix this - a dev needs to) please change that feedback's title to fix the page.

Eolindel - not your fault, you were working within the system :-)

I definitely agree with this one. Feedback titles should be concise and to the point, and enforcing a character limit will encourage people submitting feedback to do this properly.

Ideally, the character limit should be stated somewhere (next to the Title field would be best), so people sending feedback know how many characters they have to work with, rather than finding out the hard way.

thanks for the heads up, I'll fix the post and hopefully we can implement a character limit (I'm sure this has been brought up before, but this should be simple to add!)

For me these kind of problems would'nt exist if we were able to edit our posts. I saw this problem but I couldn't do anything. I often would like to edit my posts to refine my statements or ideas but currently, it's impossible.

I understand what you are saying, but what on Earth was that title you gave that feedback item before? An exact error message? If this is the case, and the error is clearly too long to fit in the title field, then it should be placed in the feedback comment instead, with the title as something like "Error message appeared when using feature X", for example.

Looks like breaking long titles works. Closing as resolved.
