    first off all... why do you throw an exception for signs with more than 15 chars? -.-

    But to the topic: If you limit the characters to 15 please dont count color-codes as 2 chars. Dont count them at all.
    Its horrible annoying that i get an exception if i use a color with 15 chars.

    Iam not a plugin developer, but iam also interested in some facts about this decision.
    As an server administrator i have to guarantee a maximum uptime.
    This fails when plugins are forced to change their normal behavior.

    Agreed although I would like to keep 15+ chars on my signs...

    And @Simanova @asdaarg

    This is a limit imposed by Minecraft 1.5 that we are now forcing on all signs. It is either this or any clients that see a sign with text consisting of more than 15 characters per line will throw an exception and crash/disconnect. It is out of our hands, though we are still looking into if we can solve this some other way.
