For a normal show or normal promo, a limit of 2 messages per person per promo. So that would give someone 10k characters to use. I know I use that myself normally for each promo for other efeds, and I know others use close to that if not a little more, and some only use 1. For PPV's a limit of 3 messages per person per promo. Now of course if you are doing a joint promo with 1 or more other people, it would be a combined amount of like. Like for instance, with the Shaz/Hawk/Smith promo, the limit would have been 6 pm's in total.
Now there would be on occasion those promos that the two people involved have a chance to make something really impactful. I don't want to name names but there are a few promos coming up between now and then that would qualify, and to me, in those times, you shouldn't have a limit, because it comes down to creativity and letting your ideas flow and making it all gel, and not worry about if your within a limit.
What do you guys think of that?
I usually do between 5k and 6k character promos, essentially 5 paragraphs of speech worth. I think for individuals there should be a 2 message limit, maybe a 3 message limit for pairs, and a 4 message limit for groups?
I take it like real life, a promo is cut to hit there points...I'm not saying anybody does talk a lot ,but a long promo overshadows what the person before said and what the next person will say. Because of the on and on and on they just did.
Mind you I'm thinkin about it as real life , imagine for somebody to do a promo so long that you atually would like to read some/hear some and skip the rest because basically the outcome is known. The point was already given, so why drag the subject.
Ya know what I mean? (Its Sunday morning, I'm in-n-out of it lol )
There is no point in limiting promos, just don't drag them out. If you can't cover what need to in under 10k characters (alone), which is a full page post wise then damn, you may be trying too hard to stand out. Over 10k should be done well with a joint promo, as more than two people can work well enough to do over 10k just fine.
