No, that's exactly what i'm saying! the really long stories right now aren't supported by a sufficient writer base right now, and i think adding this will tell those people who WANT to contribute to long stories "Hey! here's everything long!"

Also that's why i suggested limiting it because having too many long stories would make readers bored.

You should be able to vote for additional chapters. Of course, there would be an upper limit (12, 16, 20) and you could go by increments of 4 or 5 chapters. But I always feel like having 8 chapters is way too limiting
