      Yeah, I got the price quote back and it's $4,000 per app. Yikes. I don't have money for that, but I would love to see the app developed eventually (and for cheaper!).

        That's a great idea! It would be relatively simple to implement, too. We'll put it in queue with these other suggestions for improvements to the site. Thanks!

          Yeah, I'd like to see this happen, too. The complication comes because HTML formatting will subtract from the limited character count, the same reason why Twitter doesn't allow HTML formatting. To create one HTML bullet point, for example, takes 18 characters away from the 750 limit.

          I'm sure we'll figure out some sort of compromise, though, in the future. Thanks for the suggestion!

            Thanks for the input. The 750 character limit is easily adjusted, so that's not a problem. We have it there to force people to be concise in both their questions and answers. Otherwise, if there's too much text, people won't read the question nor the answers and people tend to ramble, saying the same thing 3 different was. Studies show that shorter internet articles and posts are generally better if you actually want people to read something.

            If people have a lot more to say than can fit into 750 characters, they can record a video, which is limited to 3 minutes. You can say a LOT more in 3 minutes than you can write in 750 characters.

                        Do you mean give each of the questions a tiny url? Or have the ability to be able to include hyperlinked URLs in the questions and answers?

                          Thanks for your feedback! I'll have to think through this a bit because I don't want the answers section to become just like another Internet user forum. Nor do I want ongoing discussions in the answers that could get off-topic or detract from the question that was originally asked. Maybe limit it for only the original "asker" to post 1 comment in each answer and get only 1 response to it?
