Would it be a good idea to input a character counter so we can better judge if we're going over the limit in our posts? Sometimes I'm giving everything into my answer and I didn't realize I went over the character count. Sure, there's calculators for this on other websites but I think with that being said to have it actually in the post itself would be easier so we don't know after the fact that we went over the limit.

hello, does character  count takes into consideration the links attached to certain words or images? seems like I surpassed the character count but I checked in another website and my text is around 5k characters and the page said I surpassed 20k

Yes, please! If it's possible, please implement it. Sometimes there is announcement that answer was too short and needs atleast 80 characters. Of course I agree to that, but it would be good to see how many letters we already wrote, with character limit.

For example:

0/2500

I was also thinking it would be helpful to meet the minimum character requirement when posting a question since some questions don't need very much elaboration.
