What are the limits on comments?

The maximum number of comments for each entry is 10,000. When the comment total reaches 10,000, the link to post new comments will be replaced with a message saying that the maximum number of comments has been reached.

When one entry has 5000 comments, the human test will activate. This prevents automated posting of huge numbers of comments to an entry.

The maximum length of a comment is 16,000 characters. If your comment is longer than that, you won't be able to post it and you'll get an error message. You can copy your comment text into a text editor, and then divide it into separate comments and post it in sections.
