It seems like I am reaching the max allowed size for the easy profile db as I am getting an error message about it whenever I am trying to create a new field.
In order to save some space, I have a lot of "text" fields that containing "decimals" all smaller than 9,999. I see all text fields by default are set to a max size of 255. Would it save me space to reduce this max size and if yes, what should be the size?

you have reached MySQL hard limit.
In the Easy Profile user table each field create one or more column. Unfortunately MySQL have a hard limit that not allow you to create infinite columns.

To solve this you can:
1) remove trashed fields (see screenshot)
2) with a tool like phpMyAdmin you can change type of column in the table #__jsn_users from VARCHAR to TEXT (only for columns related to Text field type)

Thanks. Most of my fields are already TEXT type. Is that the most space saving one?
