It only works in Opera. Specifically, Opera 12.14 or earlier (not the latest version)


Get that version or whatever you prefer here:

From there, just change the value of maxlength="100" to any arbitrarily large number and press enter, and then edit the description as normal.

Thank you! That's so much easier than switching browsers all the time.

This can also work for comments as well, and there is no reason this could not work for tags as well. You can also use this on sporecasts. This also works on your tagline too.

I think the tagline would be cut off though.

Just tested it. The tagline will fail to upload.

Sporecasts don't work. It just says the max length is 100.

I have an older version of IE, and I don't need to modify any settings to write long descriptions.

Older version of IE will be non-existent in a few years. Might want to update or switch to Firefox.
