    It would be helpful to have word counters for titles similar to the ones we have for summaries.  What do you think?

      I think that would be very helpful indeed, TIMETRAVELER2! I'll bring it up in our next community meeting!

        Great. I don't imagine it would be very hard for you folks to do seeing as you already have the software to do it for the summaries.  Frankly, I'm tired of counting words now that I'm using more long tail key word titles!  Will appreciate this change, and I know others will as well.

        Hey again! I just started a story for us to implement this feature. It's crazy that we haven't already, and the team agrees that this would be quite useful. Thanks so much for the suggestion!

    Presumably you mean a character counter, and yes that would be quite useful.  I get tired of counting characters in making a title.

    I check that in Word before I publish, and I hope you mean characters because if you need software to count the number of words in a title you are using too many smile

      Geesh, you guys are picky today. Yes, I meant characters, not words! Mea Culpa.  By the way, wilderness, I have updated every RV article...and some of those updates were in response to your complaint about my use of lists.  Take a look and see what you think now!

        They look good to me, TT - much better than before with all those lists.  They're just a lot more readable now, at least to my eye.  Good job.

          Thanks...you have no idea how much work this has been for me!  However, I agree...I let it get way out of hand.  I appreciate your advice.
