    Hi. First time posting to the forum, so maybe this topic has been addressed before, but would it be possible to add a character counter to the review textarea where there's a 2000 character limit?

    I've hit that character limit a few times now. I tend to write out my reviews in a note-taking app and then copy and paste them into the textarea. If my review is too long the pasted content gets truncated and I have to revise the text. Having a counter at the bottom of the textarea to tell me how many characters I have left before I hit the limit - or how far over the limit I currently am - would help me figure out how much content I need to cut or shorten.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for mentioning this. I seem to recall that before our last update, the system did not indicate the exact number of characters used, but it did indicate with a bar how close the reviewer was getting to the limit. Apparently that did not carry over to this version, and I will let the programmers know.
