The real-time character counter on the moderator nominations page claims I have 9 characters left. The non-real-time counter claims I have too many characters. PHP says that the non-real-time counter is correct, so why is the real-time counter so off?

Nomination character count bug

Great find and thanks for posting a screenshot that allowed me to recreate your input exactly.

The client javascript code is using \n line endings, while the server is using \r\n, causing this count discrepancy.

A fix that normalizes the endings before doing both client and server validation will be pushed in the next build, after rev 2012.6.6.2800.
