Im creating a new feature to allow users to add a new comment field into their online table. For various technology reasons we are using a small modal when entering comments.
The comments will be limited to 250 characters (for other reasons). My question is:
- Should i prevent users from entering in characters over 250? or
- Should i allow users to enter in characters over 250 but prevent them from submitting it and display characters which will not be submitted (similar to how twitter allows you to do this?)
