Changing maximum post length


(Shaunak Kashyap) #1

Often we see posts on these forums that include multiple, large code snippets inline with the post. This, unfortunately, makes such posts difficult to read.

A better practice would be to paste the code snippets into gist.github.com and then link to those gists from within the forum post. To encourage this practice, we are reducing the maximum number of characters allowed in a forum post. Previously, forum posts could be as long as 32,000 characters. Starting now, forum posts can be no longer than 5,000 characters.
