Implemented [Suggestion] Lists: Nesting limit

Discussion in 'Closed Suggestions' started by Nick, Aug 19, 2010.

    As demonstrated here, it appears that lists can be nested to an infinite number of levels. This obviously disrupts the page structure, and is unnecessary. As was suggested in that thread, perhaps a nesting limit of 10 should be imposed.

    I totally forgot about opening a thread here in the suggestions forum. :p

    I think you can set the max length of a post in general, right? I don't think an additional limit is needed...

    Setting a nesting limit is to limit the amount people can nests lists to, to prevent them for forcing horrendous amounts of vertical scroll.

    This needs to be added.

    so there is no way to set maximum lines per post? cause of there would be, there 'd be no need for this as I stated

    You get the idea... A post in text could easily be over 30 lines and limiting this is just pointless... however allowing there to be any more than 10+ nested list elements should be stopped... there is no need for more than this...

    I support this. That post is quite funny.

    Honestly, a user posting like that should be banned :p
    However I don't see a reason to prevent decent posts to be limited (not really sure what kind of posts would need that depth of course :p )
    that being said, I wouldn't mind it being limited either...
    I'm neither pro neither against

    I actually did this as a bug fix - all tags are limited in nesting to a depth of 20.
