So if someone gets to 22, and then someone sees the thread with a signature of 'Mister Apple is dumb.' (Without the quotes.) This signature, counting spaces and the full stop, has 21 characters. So this person could reset the count.
Is it convoluted? Yes.
Will it die immediately?
...um, I hope not.

How much does a gif or picture count for?

Let's say each image, animated or otherwise, only counts for one character.

Good point. Hmm. Maybe images count for ten.

I'd say images--and for that matter, any code or embeds--should count exactly how long it takes to put them there. So say there's the code to embed the image, and discounting the brackets to even embed it, the URL turns out to about 20 characters. Then, not counting the brackets, you have 20 characters. You'd also add those brackets to the total.

No, Id say images just count for ten no matter what. It complicates it otherwise. And this was complicated already.
Anyway, let's play.
