Allow for optional more characters on thread titles.

Hi All,

I've mentioned this before but we really need to either lengthen the allowed characters on the thread titles or make it optional. I'm sure most of the time it won't be needed so making it optional for a mod to approve when a thread is created would be great. Some threads do merit this.

Like I said I've mentioned this before but haven't gotten anywhere.

Thanks

Part of the problem with longer threads titles is display. Smaller screens, mobile, other "widgets" or views, etc.

One of the concerns is that if we lengthened the limit to X, the general length would increase towards X and then people would find that it's not long enough either :)

I don't think it'll be a problem because I strongly believe that 90% of the time a longer tread title won't be needed that's why I think an option for mod approval would be good. I'm thinking an option to ad like 30 characters don't do much harm.

Thread titles are very important. Sometimes I believe it's more important than the body itself. Nowadays we can pretty much say that most people own 20+ " monitors so adding like 30-40 characters isn't very much IMHO.
