but not by default.
so are you saying that first the OP has significantly less space available for making his point in the first post, but that he also shouldn’t be able to split his post into several posts in a row, because you do neither want that?
You can make one of these things, either reduce the maximum amount of characters per post, or not allowing the OP to make several posts in a row, but not the two combined.
That would be terrible because some things just require more text, including some responses. Imagine there are several people responding to the OP and the OP can not respond back to them all bwcause he neither has enough characters in a single post available to respond to them all, nor can he make several response posts in a row…
If anything, people need to get better with formatting and structuring theiir posts, but I think that your suggestion is a terrible idea for the reasons I elaborated above.
A better fix would imo be if we could link to headings in our own posts.
Link to Part 1
Link to Part 2
Link to Part 3
Link to Part 4
That would give longer posts a better structure if we could put an index at the beginning of it.
