I just tried to upload three images to a game gallery. The first two went through fine, but the third one keeps hanging at the very end. I guess it's possible that I just got unlucky with GeekMod breaking at that particular moment, but there's also one other difference between the photos: the third one has a long caption of five sentences.

Is there a character limit for image captions, and if so, what is it?

Re: Is there a maximum length for image comments?
There is a limit, but the description just gets cut, it does not affect how it goes through geekmod.

Let's check my gallery contributions for an example.

I think I spent some time condensing the description of this to the space available. It is 247 characters, so I would assume 250, 255, or 256 to be the limit. The limit is 256 characters.


You can edit the description even during the geekmod process if you know the image id.

Thanks, that's good to know! And argh, even my "short" captions are too long.

I guess I'll just try again with the third one later today.

If you're struggling with epic captions, don't forget that you can always add your own comment after the image is approved.

Hmm, can you add a comment on your own pictures even before they have been approved?

This will be done laugh

At least, if the image with the super-long caption ever makes it into GeekMod to begin with.

Well, it may have been a random coincidence, but when I chopped down the super-long caption the image did go through at last.

I don't see a way to comment before the image is approved.

You can't make a comment on an image before the image is approved.
