What are illegal characters in Description please help me


a full stop etc are illegal only for the title. This sometimes appears on its own for descriptions too, although such ‘illegal characters’ are allowed there. Write to the help center. That’s how mine got resolved.

This is so irritating and stupid!!! They said illegal character without telling which one is illegal.

I’ve spent 15 minutes editing the description, however the error still popping up.

The way I solved this problem was to remove the “.” and then carefully copy or paste one or two lines at a time…save…and then move forward until I was able to fully describe the gig.


Just Remove dot it will allow you to continues… Have done it and it allow me in

Hi, I have been though this same problems, and I have realized that using a little space before initiating a paragraph is considered as a invalid character, so be careful


The same thing happened to me! It turns that you can’t use the exclamation point ( ! )

Hi there,

There are no any restrictions. Best way is to copy all text to notepad and past one paragraph at a time. Before that refresh the page. Then delete everything in the description before start. Then save each time you paste the paragraphs.

My Discriotion :
I will create a Snippet Video to help promote your song

If a Music Video isn’t an option or you want to see how your fans react to your new single this is perfect for you

Heres Why

great for marketing on instagram and instagram
stand out on social media
high replay-ability
eye catching
Gives a visual they shows the energy of your song

The videos work best for songs with high energy

If you want something that will be shared

this is for you

EXACTLY, CANT USE AN INDENT, CANT USE ! stoopid if you ask me

remove “.com” if you have it in your description.
i still all day searching for the probleme in end of day i found is i remove .com and it working fine.
