Why only 25 characters for ID's?

    In many places, ID's are limited to 25 characters... This is a very annoying limit.

    For example, I'm currently making an addon and I can't use the permission ID of othersThreadUnmarkSolution, although I can use othersThreadMarkSolution. I've no idea what to use for othersThreadUnmarkSolution - any suggestions...?

    It's annoying... Increase it in a later version?

    Adjust to suit your needs.

    edit: why did I think this was talking about user id's? lol :p

    That has nothing to do with the OP.
    He is asking about permission definition IDs, which are limited to 25 characters.

    I believe part of it may be due to phrase creation.
    SneakyDave and Liam W like this.
