Why can my story only have 5 character tags?

Character tags on stories are largely in place for readers, and not for authors. While you might have a great deal of characters in your story, the character tags are intended to make it easy for people to search for stories that feature one or more characters in a prominent role within the narrative.

For this reason, we have a limit of 5 character tags per story, as the notion of focusing on any more characters than this as key players in the story is not really tenable.

If you feel your story is an exception, we would ask that you consider ranking your character tags in order of significance, and try to apply the ones that would best correspond to reader interest in your story.
