Please increase the number of characters allowed in the comment part of the Question&Answers Section of Hubpages. The allowed length of an answer is 2500 characters long which is fine. But if I want to reply to a comment to my answer, I am allowed only 250 characters which is a bit restricting.
500-800 characters would be OK. 250 is too less a number.
This is the question that forced me to post this message.
The Q&A was never meant to be where you write a long answer. If that happens, admin actually hopes you'll make a whole Hub.
250 characters can accommodate about 50 odd words if we assume 4 characters per word(which rarely happens) and discount the spaces between words. I am commenting on a reply to my comment . I don't have enough knowledge to create a hub about it .
100-150 words not characters would be better instead of 250 characters.
Relache is correct. QA is intended for short answers to factual questions.
Any further discussion should take place in the forums.
Longer conversations were intended to take place in the forums.
Your complaint is that you don't like that the Q&A was intended for short answers. I doubt admin is going to change that.
A lot of users on this site just avoid the Q&A entirely.

Tis a good thing, but can get out of proportion. On my PC Tuneup Hub the comments now take up 2/3 of the page load. I'm not complaining because I love the feedback. The latest comment from compu-smart is huge. I didn't...

In my book HubPages needs a total makeover! First of all they need to get rid of their useless staff, who let's personal extreme orthodox and conservative ideologies rule their worktime and harrassing of their users....

There seems to be a new bug the last couple of days where I can't add a comment to a Q&A answer. Does anyone else have this problem? The comment field is there after each answer. But when I enter text...

What is the maximum number of characters which can be placed in a URL in a link capsule? I am adding a link to a Street View Panaroma and my link becomes truncated every time I save the capsule and finish editing.
