Hello all. Much appreciated for the help!

I'd like to take this field:

and be able to add more than a couple lines of text to it. Is there a way to increase the characters allowed here?

Thanks in advance!

Figured it out.

Had to go into phpMyAdmin and select the mybb_profilefields table, then click the structure tab. Put check mark next to description row, select change at the bottom and edit the field type to either mediumtext or longtext, but mediumtext did the trick

MAKE SURE YOU BACKUP YOUR DATABASE BEFORE DOING THIS!!!!!
