    This may come off as a silly question, but is there any limit to how long a thread post can be?

    There is a character limit I believe, but I'm afraid I don't know what it is. So, yes.

    Edit: I think it's 10,000.

    If you get anywhere near that limit, many people, including me, won't read it.

    In addition to the technical length limit there are some points in the rules about it: There is flexibility, but if its seems spammy to staff it could be removed. If its blogging then I suggest using the personal journals section. lf its publishing then you might want to start a site feedback thread with staff and check to make sure it won't get deleted. If its copied material there are additional limits and there has to be obvious where you got it from, even if you are the author. If its been previously posted elsewhere on the net, and we find out that the first source is not cited we could consider it to be spam. Another thing is that if we think its an attempt to direct users away from the site then we might consider it spam. I'm only saying this, because you wanted to know about the limits. Those are the limits that I have seen. Usually walls of text do not work well for various reasons. They aren't usually good conversation starters, but sometimes they are not removed. It depends.

    "4. Soliciting/Advertising and Off-Topic Spam
    Soliciting or advertising for any content outside of the forums, whether your own or that of another person or group, is prohibited, and may be deleted by the staff on sight. This rule applies to any content area of the forum, including but not limited to the chat room, forum posts, profile information, private conversations, and signatures. Special exception may be granted to promote content in keeping with the mission of RF, but requires advance permission from the RF staff.

    Spam or off-topic content is also not allowed on the forums. This includes (but is not limited to) posting links or images without discussion-promoting commentary, having a signature that violates signature size guidelines, posting surveys without permission from the RF staff, posts that deviate significantly from a thread topic or its intent, repetitious non-conversational posts, and any other habits deemed spammy by the staff.

    7. Quotations and Citations/References
    Plagiarism is illegal. All quotations, whether to posts of other members or to material external to RF, should be properly referenced or cited. When quoting other members, use the forum's quote feature so the person and material you are responding to are easily referenced (see Rules 1 and 3 for additional guidelines regarding quoting other members' posts). When quoting material external to RF, even if it is your own, always provide a citation and limit your quotation to a paragraph or two rather than quoting the entire content (see Rule 4 for additional guidelines)."

    Probably true, but I've hit it a couple of times on some stories I posted here, and also a couple of particularly long threads of quote and counter-quote I have been in with both @robin1 and @Deeje (both friendly debates I assume no casual onlookers would have read).

    Quoting your own material??? That's odd.

    Did you know there is a secret forum rule that I like to call rule 11? I never quote that one! Also I never give warnings on rule 11, because that would spoil the secret of what it is.

    Huh?

    Commentary

    Edit. I'm not good with sarcasm and retorical questions. Makes the issue worse than what it needs to be.
