    As the title suggest,

    I want to eliminate or ignore the requirement of at least X characters in the message when a user creates a thread in one of the forums on my site.

    Thank you

    That will require custom development/an add-on.

    Thank you @Brogan
    what if I want to ignore it for all forums? Is it going to be any different?

    You would need to modify the code in:

    'message'                => array('type' => self::TYPE_STRING, 'required' => true,
    Changing the true to false will do it for all forums but I wouldn't recommend editing the php files as any changes are wiped out when upgrading.

    Hence why you need an add-on.

    Wait, there's no X character requirement, unless you mean X = 1 in which case @Brogan's comment is correct (we require some text). If there's a higher character requirement, that would be from an add-on.
