I figures the typing limit in this game are very low,you have to split it into multiple messages many time!I swear in other game you can type more letters in one message box.

Kooky... I can only get 35 characters in Home. I get 102 characters in Bakery. I'm on an "old" iPad.

I see many sides to this issue.

1. People won't be able to converse as much... The game will be less "social". Aren't TL games advertised as "Social" games.

2. There is a lot of harassment and inappropriate conversations in these games (especially among minors). Less messaging = less problems.

3. When I first started these games I thought... humm.. Great way to text your friends for free. I think a lot of kids are using to game only for the free texting... They don't really play, their on level 8.

Sorry for the spelling errors. Lol. The blank messages are a result of me typing in gibberish to test the length.wonder if all the games do that?

Is this an "issue" or is it by design. It seems like this is how TL made it on purpose.

Has there been an answer to this issue?? Does every player have a limited text box? I get a lot of posts on my wall that are incomplete. So, either not every has this issue or a lot of people do not bother to look what they post.

When you to visit them, look in the lower right of the screen and you will see a 'post' button. Just click that and it takes you to their wall.

Are they going to fix the texting limit soon? I notice this problem only for iPad devices ESP since I have a few iPads and iPhones in the household. Just want to know the status to this problem. Thanks for ur time.

Kooky u must have super powers because NOBODY can post two lines in this game ...unless u are using some device from outer space or somethg lol!! But seriously I know u can't even get one whole line in never mind 2. That one's a tru mystery.

As far as I know, the text limit issue is a problem with ipads. I've had multiple nbrs notify me that their posts need to have short messages due to their device, and they all an ipad (don't know any of the models, but maybe its ipad 2?). Hope this helps :)

I have an iPad 2 and I can only get a few words (or 1 line) before I get cut-off. So, if it is a specific iPad, it would be iPad 2 having the problem. :)

I believe this should be fixed with the next manual app store update - though I'm not sure when the update will come out.

It does seem to be iPad only, all 3. Kooky's original pic was for iPhone 4, not iPad ;)

I have a generation 1 iPad with the same problem. I have a couple dozen character limit before it cuts messages off. I couldn't figure out why people weren't coming back to finish their cut off messages, especially when they were leaving their IDs to be added...but no IDs were showing. I had no clue it was device related! 😄

Thanks for the pic. I guess that explains why some of my neighbors don't have their lines cut off. Hmmm, I'm on an iPad 2 but I can only write this much:
https://picasaweb.google.com/105882663897310519641/HomeDesignStory#5836412754913418418

About 17-20 letters each time I post. If more letters, I get cut off.

One line only is still showing up in original game 😒 The Xmas Edition does indeed show both lines for the iPad. Will there be a fix for the Original HDS game anytime in the future?

Hello,

I was wondering if there was any news on this issue.

Since not everyone takes the time to leave a comment, its a shame when you can't see what someone has written on your wall.

Thanks.


From a very addicted player!
