FKFic-L Line Limit Doubled  
When our much-appreciated List Gardener released the fkfic-l rules this morning, they included this striking preface: Please note a slight rule change for FKFIC-L -- the line limit per message has been raised from 500 lines to 1,000 lines.

Wow.  That's good, no question, but it throws me a little.  It's been a decade or so since post-size was unconstrained by the point at which AOL tucks the post into an attachment.  My mental scale of story-size on list is askew.

(I remember when someone gently chided me for the chapter numbers in my novel not matching the post numbers on list.  But the chapters were just longer than 500 lines each!  Perhaps they thought I should have edited more; I can see that. ~g~)

I should doubtless peek inside a forkni-l digest for the first time in several months and learn what sparked this.

I can answer that. I requested the limit be changed so I would be posting 14 chapters of the Aristotle story instead of 28. I argued that the 500-line limit was obviously from ten years ago, when people's emailboxes had a 1 meg limit instead of a 1 gig limit. Don and Lisa agreed, and changed the limit.
