Character limit of badge name

Can someone tell me the character limit of badge descriptions on profile cards?


Do you mean badge name? (that’s what you circled). Badge description only appears on hover.

Hi Josh,

Yes, I am referring to the badge name.

I don’t think there is any validation done by Discourse on the length of a badge name. The limit on its length will be the maximum size that is allowed for string types in the database. Very long words in a badge name will cause a horizontal scroll bar to appear on the badge pages though, so they should probably be avoided:


Just a little update on this one - a lot of text fields now have a maximum applied. For badge name, this is now 100 characters.
