Currently there is no indication if message limit is reached. Instead on posting get told and offered retry/cancel.

The only viable approach is to copy somewhere else, cancel and compose as multiple messages.

Better to have some indication of space available in the compose window.

  • @balpha: I told you to not have a limit. Why does no one listen to me?

  • @Lady: I have said that small size limits are not something that you want this chat software to have. Big limits, sure, but not small ones. What you really want is a way to collapse big messages so they don't interrupt the flow of the conversation but you still want to allow them.

We're thinking a small <div> overlay will appear while you're typing and give you a countdown -- but only when you've typed "too much"
