Question 250 characters is a rather low limit for signatures

I didn't realize this until I just tried to add some text that really wasn't all that long. After doing some quick benchmarking and considering the amount of space available, it seems like a rather low character limit. Can it be raised?

So are those items you don't have and are searching for or you want them to stop asking because you don't have anything like that posted for sale ?

251 is a dick move, but 253 is fucking spectacular!

Went to go change it earlier this morning and it said the limit was now 500 characters including code. (Thought it should have been excluding code?)

I decided not to change it at the time, but when I came back to do it a few minutes ago, it was back down to 253 again and excluding code.

I installed the vbulletin messwithpeoplewhosellusedairfiltersfor$10 mod that randomly changes the signature character length variable

Well, whatever.

Based on the error message regarding code being excluded, I would expect everything inside [URL] tags to not be counted (since that's what happens with[LIST] tags). It appears to be counting them.

No, I found all the parts previously listed which people were wanting, so I cleared it. Right now I'm just trying to figure out in Word what actually works on your f'd up site.
