No sir. Rolle has said himself it's better for it to be too much rather than too little.

I would imagine so, yes. I don't know if there is a limit as such, but Admins have to process a ton of these per day, so they can't spend too long on each. I'd say 3-5 decent sized paragraphs is probably ideal.

two main things to address:

Presentation: We aren't grammar nazi's, but to play on this server requires you to be able to communicate (reports, roleplaying etc) with some level of competency. Make sure your spelling and grammar is of a decent level, and for the love of god, paragraph your story.

Content: We don't expect novel level storytelling, however, cliche characters and plot lines generally won't cut it. Try and be creative, put a little bit of time into coming up with an interesting backstory for your character.

Try to use Google and spellcheck, re-read yourself, and just do your best.

I noticed a software limit for the background. I had a background with around 1800words(about 7000 characters) and the input window of the whitelist wasn't capable of it.

Many people only do 3-5 paragraphs so i would limit it if possible, give other people a chance to get whitelisted also.

8000 characters is the limit for the bio, 4000 for the "about you" field.

Thanks for posting the exact amount. Now I know how much to take out now rather than later. :)
