Character Limiting In post and comments

Hey guys,

I understand the editor is using Markdown language, is there anyway that we can choose to decide the amount of characters there can be in a single post.

I supposed its in a TEXT, varchar datatype since i was able to post a 6000 character comment.

Hey Tim!

Great question, we actually don't have a "character limit" but we do have a "size" limit of 800kb - which is pretty big

However, comments do have a 25,000 character limit

Thanks Casey. That is pretty big indeed. Will take a look and see if i can do any limiting on my end
