I've noticed over the last few weeks that Redbubble hasn't been displaying my full product descriptions below my products. They are getting truncated severely.
Today I did a character count of the text that does show, and it measures out at 256 characters. This was true several designs that I checked.
What does this mean for you as a Redbubble artist? You must fit whatever you want to say about your artwork within 256 characters, or it will be cut off. It seems most RB artists already have descriptions well below this threshold, so that's good. But for anyone who is particularly verbose, like me, we'll have to do a lot of rewriting.
I've got to say, I'm also disappointed in Redbubble for not making a formal statement about this change. It does have a big impact on my store. Now all my long descriptions, on over 100 products, need to be edited because they look ugly, being cut off mid-sentence or mid-word.
What changes to Redbubble have you noticed lately, that have gone undocumented? Leave a comment below and let me know!
Peace, love and sunshine,
