Never once have I been given the prompt to remove text from an answer, but that happened a minute ago.
I admit to being long winded at times, but have always typed my answers freely without any indication that my answers were too long. Just now, I was given the prompt to 'remove irrelevant information' without telling me HOW MUCH I had gone over. This meant that I had to try removing stuff, check for length (still too long), try removing more stuff again ... check for length again ... still too long ... but I don't know how much more stuff to remove, so I keep taking stuff off ... but can't there be a little thing that says how far we've gone over so we know HOW MUCH TO REMOVE !?!??!
