Thanks for giving these consideration.
The inline image (smilie) limit has been raised to 20. The post length limit is 40000 characters and you can attach 10 images. While this could be increased it's hard on those with small devices who have to scroll so we've taken a middle ground here.
The 2 hour time limit the site team will discuss but it was put in place after some negative experiences with folks posting and then deleting or altering their posts to avoid some backwash. Changing posts after someone else has responded can make the responding post seem irrelevant of even off topic. The goal was to allow enough time for corrections but not too much more.
Moderators are willing to assist with edits if some are needed after the 2 hours has gone by ... but I understand your basic request and we'll toss it around.
