Posting on others' feeds truncates text without warning
I posted a message to another user's feed, and only the first 500 characters appeared on the posting. It's not clear whether the user will be able to see the whole text or not (there's no "more" button). Furthermore, there was no warning when posting.
I was able to post a reply to this post and fill in the remaining text, but it would be nice to have an "[xxx characters remaining]" warning as you're typing once you get past 350 or something (cf. StackOverflow/StackExchange comment boxes), or to at least warn the user that text will be truncated.
It doesn't seem a consistent 500 words to cutoff for me. Somedays I can type well over 500 words, and sometimes a basic assistive contact gets cut off. So, my best advice is to make it a habit to copy everything before sending. And if someone isn't very good at that, type it out in an email or document first and paste it over. It's been like this for as long as I can recall. I agree, it would be nice to know how close I'm getting to the cut off point. :)
