Max post length
Max post length should be increased to allow flg posts

Currently the max length for a post on the forum is 10k characters. I think this is in dire need of increasing - not because of my tendency for ridiculously lengthy posts, but also because of anyone wanting to post flgs to the YAVP and YASD subforums. An end game flg can easily reach 30k characters. Now, granted, I really think people should be encouraged to snip these down by removing most of the eq and kill lists, but 10k is still very restrictive. Possibly it should be increased to 15 or 20k?

Easily changed in vBulletin Options >> Message Posting and Editing Options >> Maximum Characters Per Post
(setting a value of 0 makes it unlimited - well, limited to 16 MB, but I presume that might leave the forum more vulnerable to some sort of spamming attack)

Voted for it. In my topic on YAVP sub forum I had to cut off big part of my .flg file. .flg files are usually posted in [c o d e] tag, so long YAVP or YASP really won't be an issue.

I vote against... or parhaps just abstain for the moment.
My reasoning: If you post the *.flg, why not snip it to display only the interesting things? It's not that your collection of rings of stun resistance and rings of protection +1 is THE crucial part of the victory post?

No, it isn't(in my YAVP cutted off almost all my inventory and spell list). But even if someone would like to post .flg with tons of rings, wands and other stuff, post wouldn't be longer that .flg only with stats, equipment and achievments, due to [c o d e] tag, so I don't see any problems with absurdaly long YAVP or YASD posts.

because this is not for the .flg thing, is about having to split some post because theres not enough space...

look at the religion thread.
