My podcast title is just a little too long for the display name's 25 character limit - any advice? Soundcloud is amazing for podcasting, but I need my name to show up correctly for podcatchers. What's the reason for the 25 character limit? Can anyone help?

Hi Brett,

You might be able to work around this by putting in your Podcast name in the Custom feed title field on your content settings.

Thanks for your reply! That certainly helps - but accurate searchable name are super important. This is primary information and display names enjoy the top spot in the user content visual hierarchy.

I think I'd really like to know why the cap of 25 letters? Can that be fixed? I'm not sure if many others have run afoul of this, but is there a need for it? Why not, say, 63 characters - the maximum length for domain names?
