12,000 words. Crap. That means I can only add 2 more chapters to my 2.0 bio. I'll have 3 which are 4,000 each.

I just found this out a few moments ago. I added another chapter to Sparda's Super Life, and half of it got cut off.

Is this a restriction that the admin put on or is it something about space?

I'm not really complaining (I can make a fan-fic to have the rest of the bio in), I was just surprised and wondering.

Wow. I need to stop spacing out my lines when I write......

Thanks for that. Guess I'm just gonna have to make a fan-fic thread.

"I don't think you folks need to have bios that incorporate EVERY single miniscule detail of your character, because that's ridiculous. Think about it like the bios of characters on the vine. I don't see every little issue being discussed in Spider-Man or Thanos' page. You can just sum up your character's history and if absolutly feel like you need to make every bloody detail out in the open, then just fan-fic it. I personally don't feel like reading somebody's super-life and reading their conversations that go on. I'd rather just read up summaries but then again, that's my opinion."

My Bio, originally, wasn't meant to be just a summary, I was making it up to a fan-fic that you didn't have to go through pages of the forums to find. But, I can see your point.

Exactly, you don't need to make it a fan-fic though. If you want it to be a fan-fic, then make a bloody fan-fic, don't make it your bio because nobody wants to read that if they want to read your super-life. They just want a summary. If I'm looking at your profile, I don't want to sit back and have to read everything if I just want to know the OVERALL picture of things.

That's what I did at the beginning of it-I put a neat little summarization. After that, I went into more detail. I'm probably one of the only people, but I enjoy lengthy bios that are full of detail. They're always there, and I know where to find them easy.

Eh, whatever....."

My bio is so long that reading every last word of it can and will drive you mad.

I enjoy them too, but I don't want to read it on a bio. Give me a story in the STORY section. I just want a summary of it. Then again, I'm picky about these things.

Powers and Weaknesses isn't a summary. That's explaining guess what, POWERS AND WEAKNESSES, NOT the character's history. Why include every little bloody detail as to the conversations and all that. Just keep the relevant information. It's stupid to put in a bio "His coat swayed and he did and he did that and slept on the hay stack and yada yada yada" when no one cares about little things like that. Keep it short, sweet and to the point.

Email them to yourself, make it a blog or something. Or make a thread about it. You don't need the story to go with you everywhere and if you do, figure something out as opposed to making it on a bio.

I don't think anyone mentioned this, but you can put chapters on your character into your blog as well as fanfic threads. That's what I did with my other profile, Grim Wolf.
