Is there a maximum word count for accepted articles?
Hi, I'm writing my first hub and it's a book summary. However, the book is really rich in information and I feel like it will be very long (more than 3000 words) . So will it be unaccepted if it crossed some kind of word count limit? Or can my article be as long as it needs to be?
It's important to know that I'm avoiding repetitions of ideas and trying very hard to be concise but also give every important information its value.
Thanks in advance

Is there any way of checking the word count in your hub?Is there any way of checking the word count in your hub, and do figure captions count in the total word count? I ask because contests specify a word count, but if using lots of pictures with captions in the hub do the words in the captions...

Do comments add to the word count of an online article or blog?I've seen some articles that aren't very long but have many comments that add up to a high word count. I just wondered if the search engines count this as word count for the page.

On another thread, a Hubber suggested that if HubPages had a minimum word count, it would prevent some spammers.I know that a very low word count can get a Hub flagged as substandard, but perhaps it's set too low at the moment?
