Howcome a post can only contain a maximum of 4000 characters ?

With the topics of discussion here on this forum debate is guaranteed to happen and with only a 4k character limit it means that debate in posts will be short especially when you reply to a rather informative post & need to quote separate parts to have your counter points aired.

Anyway sorry if it's already been asked or I wasn't supposed to ask this but just curious or if there's anyway to increase the character limit ?

By posting more you increase your limit.

NO, no, and no! Replying to yourself is verbotten. Besides, do you want us tinfoil hats to be seen as crazy?
We have it bad enough as it is.

Seriously, just post as normal in board conversations. You'll have enough posts for U2Us in no time, and your limit will increase along the way. Best of all, you'll slide into the community here without coming on like some demented streetcorner prophet. Don't you hate people who come into an ongoing conversation and try to just take it over by talking a mile a minute?

Take your time, it's the journey that counts, not some destination.

Just continue on in another post.

New Post Character Count Restrictions


If there is a 'new member' poster who would like to 'say more' than 3000 characters can carry, it is an easy enough matter to simply make another post in addition to the first.

Or instead of replying to yourself or making another post, just don't bother posting anything in the first place.
If it is that important for the world to know then and it is about something important and relevant and not just an audition for worlds crappiest author then I along with a lot of others will back you all the way if you need to use ten posts or a hundred posts to get your message accross, as long as it isn't bull or a hoax.

Yeah, I think I am at 6500 right now. So I post often. I think it is because ATS wants to know that we are serious about what we have to say, and why we are here. And I admire that, we prove our worth here and don't just chat away.

Just post more than one post. A debate doesn't mean taking turns, well it does, but not necessarily your turn, my turn, your turn... A debate is a statement of what one is defending and you may say two things to everyone of somebody elses. But remember, just cause you say more doesn't always mean your rightf!

Or you could just keep quiet, not complain, not post anything, not risk anything, and not contribute to the site through a matter or priciple that you believe restrictions of this nature are wrong.

Just a thought, but what if from now onwards if everyone who runs out of space to put their thoughts etc. in one post just doesn't bother making that post at all.
I wonder what would happen then, would someone who has something groundbreaking to tell us all go and break the story on another site that doesn't offer any restrictions and perhaps make that site famous.
Or what if people find that they have a lot to say about something and are forced to make multiple posts, will we and up with the first five posts of every thread being taken up by the original poster?

I love these what if scenarios, especially when either way someone loses out.

Ah.....!
It's the American way, equality and freedom is only an illusion. Once we deem you worthy then you will have privilages, BUT NOT BEFORE !

Reminds me a bit of a line in Animal Farm by George Orwell:-
"All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others".

Oh and to Discotec, i would suggest you follow the advice in your signature regarding certain people while you are here.
Not all standard members have the same amount of influence here as certain others do.
