Before I start this thread's suggestion, I'd like to give a bit of backstory, and ask a question.
For those of you who know me as an author, I tend to write big chapters, at least by amount of words per chapter. If I ever write below something like 6-7k words, it's because it's supposed to be a simple prologue, meant to introduce a few things.
Now, I dunno how many characters are in each word of my chapters on average, but I'd assume something like 4-6 characters per word. In any case, my question is this: What's the limit on character count per forum post supposed to be, and is there ever a good reason to up the limit?
My reason for asking is because I don't want to split up a chapter at an inopportune time in the story.... that make sense?
My suggestion for this thread is that the forum has an upper limit of 250k characters (counting spaces) per post. That way, stuff like RolePlays get to have longer introductory posts, and nobody gets mad that their chapters are too long (okay, I'll be honest, that's just a number based on the current size of one of my documents in character amount... and it's all the same story, with multiple chapters in it, so that I know where it all is... the current number of characters in that document is 246821 characters with spaces attached).
