I'd like to be able to share a person's memories via 'Use Your Personal Knowledge' but 200 characters isn't long enough
It would be great to have more space available to add in details.
Has this only been applied to the Personal Knowledge section?
I have tried to add a newspaper obituary as an external resource in the Other Life Events > Other section and it is still limited to 200 characters.
We added a feature last week allowing people to add full-length stories (up to 2000 characters) about people: https://beta.livesofthefirstworldwar.org/site-updates
You should be able to try this out on the Life Stories you're working on.
wanted to add a comment about ancestor being shell shocked but 200 characters certainly not long enough

Excellent news! I, too came unstuck with the 200 character limit.

Great idea. We will soon be adding a feature to allow people to add full length stories. These can be based on personal knowledge or other sources of evidence. Its on its way!
