My Boards Bio had a total of 1441 words, mostly movie quotes and IMDb forum quotes.
This number of words/characters cannot be saved.
With the original length of 1441, changes I made to the text were not saved. When I cut out the text, and pasted into an external file, saved the empty profile, and then wrote the word "test" to save, the word was saved in the profile. When I cut my profile text in half and copied about 700 words back into the profile and saved it, the text was saved and shown.
(Edited to add: Browser type is irrelevant, both Firefox and IE display this behaviour)
My guess is that a character limit was recently introduced for the Boards bio field, but this is not documented anywhere I can find, nor is there a warning like with the signature field (100 characters).
If there is a character limit for a field, it should be signposted next to the field.
I was lucky that I copied my profile text to an external file before testing, otherwise I would have lost it...
