Default Maximum length of a Post

I was just wondering what the max length of a single post is? I am writing a .... rather lengthy Windows 7 tutorial and from what I've seen, I will probably consume quite a few posts. If a lengthy tutorial is created in the form of several posts, do the mods/admins have the ability to merge into one?

Thank you sir. I actually just decided to piece out the tutorial into smaller tutorials. I have two now posted for review and about 15 more on the way. Might as well share the $3,000 class that American Tax payers paid for right?

maximum post size (on the forum) is 10,000 characters, -I've exceeded it plenty of times before when writing replies.

when 10,000 chars is reached you have to use a separate post.

mods cannot combine the posts, and auto merge will not combine the posts either.

but that's fine, a tutorial that long is going to cover multiple points anyway, so there may be a natural break point where it's make sense to go onto a separate post.

-I don't know if there will be different limits for the guide section, -I doubt it.

While we're on this subject, what is up with the 5 photo maximum? I don't like having to take up three or four posts just to put some pictures up.

Thanks, JCB. I often found 5 to be quite restrictive when posting in the galleries. ^^
