Default Enhance Post Length Limit for Guide Forums?

I think this is the right forum to post this, anyway the title pretty much says what I'd like. I think it'd save on posts if guide makers could just make their entire guides in one post.

I mainly say this since my guide is reaching the character limit soon... and given how wordy I can be at times...

Anyway, please lengthen the character limit in the posts in the guide sections.

I do believe that character limit changes affect the entire board.
Although Miyuki's suggestion is what I would say.

Just make another post with "Guide Cont." or something on top, so others know that you are continuning the guide on another post

Ah okay... I just think that it'll make my guide seem sloppier if I do that...

You can think of it as "Chapters" and divide them into different sections, IMO, it seems more organized that way too. We don't mind if the author double or triple posts (or using reserved space) when they write a guide. Totally understandable.

Yeah but I forgot about post length limits lol T_T. I can't really reserve posts that I never made.

I did some research into it and there's currently no way I can set post lengths up for just a couple forums as this is a group - not forum - permission. We're looking to write a new plugin to make guides more intuitive and I'll see if I can override it when we get it finished. I'm hoping to have this done around Q1 of 2009.

Closed for now as a suitable workaround has been found.
