Partial fix Character limit on polls

I encountered a 100 character limit error but I don't know if it's the poll title or the options.
Firstly can this be made clear which one it's for and secondly can this limit be increased?

We regularly have poll options with more than 100 characters when it's for caption competitions.

I've finally added HTML limits here to try to prevent the error, which applied to both title and the responses. In terms of increasing the limit, aesthetically, 100 characters can push poll results to 4 lines, which is probably a bit over the top.

As a workaround, you could put snippets of the captions in the poll so that people know what they're referring to, but put the whole thing in the body of the post.
