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 want to filter it out, but he could have made a hubpage out of it!I've seen...

When I look at the questions section of hubpages I see pages and pages of silly questions. A lot of the time, when I click on "unanswered" or "latest" I see that the same person has asked ten or so questions in a row. I suspect that in most cases this is because of the fact that...

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.

Could the number of characters be increased so that we could set problems on hubs?

I apologize, but it seems a "Best" answer was chosen on my question when I did not choose it. I hope the HP Team can help me or someone can inform me why that happened! I noticed it via my phone and I knew that I did not choose an answer and I was not going to do so any time...

Could hub pages increase the word limit we are allowed to comment for Q&A?I'm sure that most of us who Ask and answer a lot of questions wouldn't mind if the word limit was brought up to 500 or so from 250. I believe that it would help Hubbers explain themselves better online.
