  2. Mark added an answer to a question: Mac or PC? Why?   

    I think it's a roughly even split. I know for the devs: me, Matt and Rikki all use Macs while Brandon, Andy, Ryan and Daniel use PCs.
  3. Mark added a post in a topic: Did you know that you can post really, really, really long topic titles in Invision Power Services Comunnity Suite 4.0 and there is no option in the Admin Control Panel to limit that?   

    Yeah, it's awesome isn't it?  
    Limiting by character length is of course a bad approach nowadays because s creen sizes vary. In the old days we'd have "acceptable resolutions" which we'd target - now users can be using anything from a tiny phone at 320px wide to a  something  like the new 5120px wide iMac . On one, 10 characters might be the most you can display on one line, on the other it could be hundreds. That's why we have this  responsive design that works at any width and can take, for example, whatever title you throw at it, and make still look great. The days of assuming a user's screen will be somewhere around 1024-1200px wide are behind us (and hurray for that)!
    To be honest though, it's always been a bit of a hack. Character widths vary significantly - an "i" is much thinner than an "o" and that's before even considering that a title might include non-latin characters (even if your site deals in English only, Emojis are becoming more and more commonplace) so "number of characters" has never been a good way of determining the width of something. We're glad to finally get rid of it
