Would you like a minimum word count set for post and replies?

Yes, I think post and replies should be longer than one or two-words, perhaps a minimum of 5
4 (40%)
No, that may prevent peeps from replying at all...
4 (40%)
One time at band camp I could only utter one word, "good" *
2 (20%)

Would you like to see an increase in the minimum word count for a post or reply?

This would eliminate one or two-word replies...

just an optional mod that could be installed...

ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!

I'd just like to see folks actually respond in some way, any way, to a post that somebody spent half an hour or more building. Place be ded.

I think you should just add more emojis instead.  Emojis are slowly (or perhaps, quickly?) reducing the number of words used overall in today's world anyway.  It won't be long before you'll see entire conversations conducted in emojis and GIFs. I, for one, am a big fab of it.  Words are hard. Besides, it worked for cavemen all those years ago just fine. Make written communication great again.
