Just to let you know the problem is somewhat resolved, but not 100%. I can go into "edit this post" at the bottom of the post and open it up to edit it. That does let me edit the body of the thread, but not the title or the picture (which I like to change to spice up the listings). when you go into "edit details" at the top, and then try to edit the post it still gives you the error message in regards to the 100,000 characters.
Thanks for the help with this, I do understand that there are only a handful of people who would find this to be troublesome with very large posts I just happen to be one of them.
"Very large" is an understatement, but we will get this resolved.
I'd get rid of 1/2 the "stuff" as it's hidden after being sold, but the new B&S rules say it has to stay in the listing after sold. There are 100,000+ characters just in sold items. Is there a a special title for the biggest thread? lol Sorry to be a pain with maxing out the thread character limit.
