1. Question title:
Is it possible to show number of characters remaining when entering the question title? Currently if you attempt to create a question with a really long title or with a too short one, you can see the error only after you try to submit the question.
In my opinion the title maximum length can be reduced a bit more if the idea is to prevent people from pasting the whole question in the subject - 28 words for a title is probably too generous. https://answers.sap.com/questions/18273/test-length-of-title-lorem-ipsum-dolor-sit-amet-co.html
If nothing was changed in the content, is it necessary to create a new revision? At the moment it seems possible to spam revisions and notify followers with each new one. Will there be a limit on revisions per post?
3.Closing a question:
It is possible to change the answered status or choose a different best answer of a closed question created by me and closed by me (reason The question is answered, right answer was accepted) - is this the intended behavior?
4. Sorting replies:
It can be useful to have an option for sorting by the highest rated in descending order to give a chance to higher-quality replies to appear close to the top if the accepted answer by the OP is not a very good one (if I understood correctly, sorting by votes is meant to measure the activity- up-votes+down-votes, but not the quality of the answer).
1: Thanks for the feedback, I'll check what we can do about showing the characters left. The max length is currently 255, do you have a recommendation about what would be the optimal number?
2: I don't think there will/should be a limitation on how many times you can edit your content. However, turning off notifications for "minor edits" is on the radar.
3: It can always happen that there is a better answer. Once the question is closed no new answers can be added.
4: Sorting by votes is the default which always has the best answer (accepted answer) on the top, then the one with the highest vote sum (assumption is that the higher the vote sum, the higher is the quality). Sorting by old/new will be changed and be in strict chronological order, instead of having the accepted answer on the top.
