# How many lines get allocated to “intro to a question” under Questions tab?

I was surprised to see more lines than usual allocated to this question. How does that happen?

• My guess is that it is the number of characters, and not number of lines that makes the difference. – Willie Wong Nov 9 '12 at 17:06
• Are you talking about $f(10)=\{0,2,4,6,8,10\}$ being put on a line by itself? I am not sure what you mean by "allocated lines". – robjohn Nov 9 '12 at 17:32
• To see better what the OP means, you can look here (at least until the questions is pushed from the front page in that tag). – Martin Sleziak Nov 9 '12 at 17:37
• I see now, it goes by the count of characters. Is there a way of knowing how much of a question will be displayed before submitting it? If not, what is the number of characters that will show in the Questions tab? – Maesumi Nov 9 '12 at 18:28
