It kind of a troublesome at first because I can wrote a long chapter and doesn't really like to split my chapters in two, but as time goes, I kind of just let it be. Like everyone said, tapas promote itself as a bite size comic and novel platform, and having short chapters usually benefit you because you can show up on the FRESH section more often.
I still doesn't particularly like the limit but what can I do. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Mostly just split the chapters and be done with it.
The last chapter I wrote is kind of a trouble because I wrote it over the characters limit by 800 characters, so I need to edit it for a few days because I'm too stubborn about chapter splitting when it's less than 1000 characters, and then I somehow ended up with exactly 15000 characters on that chapter.
If you have PC, there's a trick someone told us on discord to bypass the limit. The link is down there I'd you're interested :
