Yahoo! Messenger status message length

There was a recent change in Yahoo! Messenger’s status message length, reducing the maximum number of characters from 250 to 40. Sarah Bacon, the Product Manager for Yahoo! Messenger, explains on their team blog that “it was an inadvertent change and [they]’re working now on rolling it back to what it was (250 character max).”

So, be patient folks!

Update: The issue had already been fixed, as mentioned by Product Manager Sarah Bacon on the comments. For those who still can’t create status messages longer than 40 characters, please restart Yahoo! Messenger for the fix to take effect.

    The fix was completed on October 4 (the same day of the post on our blog). Thanks,
