The description field is a varchar(255) and you can see that the string length trying to be added is string(293). I force maxlength="255" on the field on the forum, but let the DW fail silent on that field since its not critical. I guess I could increase it, but really, the description field (right now) is only used on the "lists" and for customization purposes (and is limited to displaying less then 255 characters on lists anyway).

Im going to toss this over to the bugs forum so that I can tweak a few things pertaining to description anyway.
I have started to get this error of late, it's only ever from one user, but it stops them for adding their showcase to i tell them they need to make their description shorter. But it's good that you are planning a fix :)
This SHOULD be fixed now. The input box on the form is limited to 250 characters and I also added a validator to the DataWriter that will throw an error if more than 250 characters are submitted.
