Just curious, does the board still have the "1000 posts max" rule since the switch-over? If so, it's about time to start a new Cast the Characters of Trek Literature thread.
No, at least from a technical standpoint AntonyF
has given his ok for larger threads. The official ruling at the moment is that it's up to the respective forum's mods if they still enforce the rule for some reason or not.
ETA: You can find a recent Q,S&F thread about the topic here
