toni-a created the topic: message title too short

Often when I want to ask a question in the message title the message title is too short for it, can it be a little longer for instance I wanted to ask in the title "at which size is it safe to put a raphael catfish in an oscar's tank" the last two words didn't fit, is it possible toarrange this ?

you can re-phrase it like:
"catfish safe size-in oscar tank?"

just elaborate it in the body of your post!

thanks Paul, in fact I did :)
However I prefer to be specific in the message title so that the readers know what is about, I prefer avoiding titles like "oscar bad please please help"

I have increased the number of characters in the title from 50 up to 65. You should be able to create a specific title with 65 characters. The reason why I wouldn't want to go more than 65 is because Google only reads up to 65 characters, therefore any more would be a waste of probably look out of place on the search engines

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

Many thanks Penn, 65 characters is very reasonable.
