More Characters for Quiz Questions?

    Could the number of characters be increased so that we could set problems on hubs?

      That would definitely be nice. I also recall the text from the details of a quiz result being cut off in practice but not when typing it. In other words, you'd think all your text fit, but if you actually tested the quiz, you'd see it was actually unceremoniously spliced.

      Admittedly, it has been a bit since I've used a quiz, so it's possible things are different now. And no one wants to see a novel in a quiz capsule, so the limitations may be intended to keep us brief.

        It seems to be set at 120 characters which seems like a lot, but it can be an effort condensing a question into that length. Even about 30 or 40 more characters would be useful.

    Would you like the long answer, the short answer, or the kind of middling answer that will make no one happy? Still short of 120 characters hereā€¦

    How can 120 characters be too few for a question? lol.

      For technical exam type questions, it can be a little short Will. It can take a few sentences to explain everything and add parameters and cramming it all into 120 characters isn't always easy. It's not what the quiz was intended for though I suppose.
