I was wondering if we could have a field in our profiles to enter our character descriptions? It would make gift art a lot easier.

And I know some of us have more than one character so maybe there could be secondary or even a tertiary char desc field?

Hehe, all right, this is getting ridiculous. ':blush:' Hey, mods, would a change to the profile system like this be feasible?

I like this idea. I like it a lot. It'd really help with surprise gift-art, too. Then you don't have to ask around or even give away the surprise.

I ninth it!  '<img'>

I'm glad so many furs like the idea but I'm wondering if any admins have seen this post? Is the forum capable of supporting this idea? Is there no chance? Will you think about it? Could I get some feedback from the admins for this idea?

Character descriptions in the profiles? No way!!! Thats the most horrible idea....    



'<img'>
Okay, so maybe it's not that bad, but I do think it should have some kinda limit. Especially when you start talking second, third, or ever forth character descriptions. I've seen character descriptions on FurryMuck, and it's not pretty. Far too many of them fill up the whole screen and then some. Do you really need a novel in the profile? Anyone who has a website can always put all the info they want there and just provide a link to it.

I could see adding a small space for a description though. (which would be a great place to put such a link.)

Hence why there would be some sort of character limit on the profile, like 1,000 characters, so that we don't write the Great Furry Novel in profiling ourselves. '<img'>

I personally put a link to my character profile in my sig (mostly because it's a new character).

But still...

even though it would have to be limited in length, I support this movement if it's in any way possible.  '<img'>

It's not impossible, but it'd have to be limited a fair deal since large descriptions would put a fair bit of bloat on the database for the board. I'll discuss it with WS at some point.
As it is, for gift art, I'd figure that someone that would be in the position of giving such work would already be familiar with the character in the first place. I dunno. S'just silly ol' me. ':p'

well, actually, I suggested it because I've been stuck having to ask so many times and it's never a surprise at that point.

I can understand the space issues and I think it would be a nice compromise to at least have space for a URL pointing to a character description webpage.
