Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

Several of you have been playing with our new Domino Limits page design, which I rolled out today right before posting my earlier post. (Compare with the old page - cringe.) Along with the ability to comment on individual limits is a matching ability to tweet individual limits. It is not included in all documents yet as I am slowly making tweetable versions, but it gives you the ability to answer a question on twitter by simply:
 
1) copying the person's username (e.g., blanghinrichs) , 
2) searching the Domino Limits to find the appropriate limit,
3) opening the document by clicking on the  symbol,  
4) clicking the appropriate Tweet button (there may be multiples), and
5) modifying the tweet (e.g., changing from "Max characters allowed in Form names: 32 #DominoLimits" to "@blanghinrichs Max characters allowed in Form names: 32 #DominoLimits"). Each tweet includes a link back to the specific document showing the limit.

I am still playing around with how to make these more useful, so let me know any ideas you have. I received my first new limit in a while from Mark Ramos. As I tweeted: 

Max new docs per second before db/doc mod time skews forward: 48 #DominoLimits #JustAdded t.co/qGD8ZGO 

Now, what I'd really like are some XPage limits. There must be some.

Back in 2004, in a post called Limits in Notes/Domino: Living document, I blogged about taking over the Domino Limits page that Mike Woolsey had maintained in the Business Partner forum for a long time before that (with his permission, of course). Since then, multiple versions have come along, and many, many people have helped shape this dynamic list of official and unofficial limits, maintained on our Domino Limits resource page. For a long time, it was the most popular single page on our website aside from this blog, until it was overtaken by the Web Editors resource page.

Thanks to the posting yesterday by Paul Farris, I was reminded of the importance of such a page. He had so many hits from re-posting the table from the Notes Help that his blog now shows the error message below. I don't know what his limits are, but clearly the interest is great. To prevent Paul's provider from having hissy fits, might I suggest you come over to the Domino Limits resource page, which has all these limits and many more. Every limit allows you to comment on it, so you can point out errors, or suggest additions and caveats. That is where the wisdom of crowds comes in. This is still a living document, as it was when Mike maintained it for years, and any new information you have to offer will help the whole community.

(Special thanks to my provider, The Turtle Partnership, for never shutting me down, no matter how I swamp their servers.)
