  11. Why isn't my long quote convereted into Quote Image?
    The technical team had to take a decision on the limit of characters that can be printed into the image, we chose limit of 300 characters for pics of 600X400 (quote page); while 200 characters for 400X200 (category, keywords, home page, list pages). The decision was taken with presentability in mind, Longer text would become invisible on the canvas, it would also limit the available fonts and colors. Trust us, this is in your (and our) best interest.
  12. Why are comments, Ratings (on quote page)disabled in the new version?
    There were very few genuine comments and Ratings submitted by the users, it was often used by the spammers to post gibberish, it took a lot of time out of editors, so we decided to discontinue it.
  13. Why are website links (on profile) page disabled in the new version?
    There were plenty of spam accounts created solely for the purpose of getting a link back to their websites, google penalized our site (OwnQuotes) because of such activities, we had to discourage spamming
