After some time here i've noticed that a lot of people tend to answer with short replies, so i figured i could as you what kind of replies you would apreciate; if it is short and very general answers, or if you want them longer and more detailed (answer in the poll)
I've never asked a question, but I think my expectations would vary on the subject matter. Complicated relationships, theism, political, whatever questions usually can't be covered with short posts. It might take a least 500 words to so to properly articulate a point. I don't have any issues reading large posts that use all 2000 characters.
Anything simple could be answered in no more than a few lines.
For a topic like this? I think 492 characters is the perfect amount for a good post.
