Default Max. characters per post in fan fiction?

Well, someone made a thread about the max. characters in a post, but it was closed when an important point had been brought under my attention.

Many writers in the fanfic section have trouble with the maximum characters per post. My question is simple: Can't the maximum characters per post be a higher number in the fanfic section? I really don't use it, but I do read fanfics and it sometimes bothers me.

This may have been mentioned before, but I wouldn't know.

Hrm... I wonder if that would be possible to do without extending the max characters in all the other forums as well... -_- I'm not familiar enough with this forum's engine, but it might be an issue.

is the problem because of member's signatures in the breaks between posts? cause I can see that as annoying.

as far as raising the character limit in fanfic, I really don't have probs with it. I'm neutral on the matter at hand.

And yes, Jack, that is the main problem for me. For writers, the problem is actually making an end to every post.

NP advises new writers to write with this in mind (implying he also does so).

It's not a problem for me since I type like three pages only in Msword but it does get annoying when you have to count every one of those characters to make sure it doesn't go over the limit.

I believe MS word has a character count, or am I being folly now?
