Would it be possible to insert some small character or sign in premium posts showing where the text is cut off for non-premium members? This can be helpful to see which part of a message a user might not have been able to read.

Even after all this time, I'm not sure exactly where the cutoff is and I think it can be affected (confused?) by BBCode around the cutoff point. If you want to check a particular post, log out and read it without logging back in as your premium self, you'll see where it cuts off.

Craig - I asked for this enhancement to avoid having to do that. If a small graphic character or even if the first "un-readable-as-non-premium" character were to get a different color it would be enough.

Oh, I know... I just don't think we'll see any kind of an enhancement to this site in, well... ever. From what I recall, any kind of improvements are supposed to be in the 'new version' of the site that has been in the works for some time now. Hopefully that's still happening.

You are probably correct - but if the code is there to "chop off" at the word limit then it shouldn't be much work to add a character or modify the color (or perhaps a slightly different font). We'll see...

Worst case, count 200 characters. For that, I believe, is what they get.
