Poll: CFC Post Length

Length is an integral part of creative works, but it behaves differently online than in hardcopy. There is no hard limit online, as there is in a paper book or magazine, but readers tend to have shorter attention spans. Cyberfunded creativity (aka crowdfunding) has many different manifestations. Let's explore how we are handling, or would like to handle, issues of length. (This focuses mainly on text rather than images.)
