It would be great if one can see how much space is left while typing a response or query below the typing box.

This will help people cut their response short.

The inconvenience which one can face is after typing the response, when the user clicks on post, notification pops up for exceeding the limits. You edit your response, but you are still not sure if ou are within the limt.

In case you are not t pops up again.

It would be helpful if we can incorporate this in NetPro.

I agree. I've gone over the wall on a couple occasions.

Plus with the little teeny tiny window and very basic edit capabilities, it can be a challenge to make the edits and keep it readable.

IMO, it's not a huge priority, but if you happen to find a decent editor (with word/character count) that can be integrated, I'd vote to put it in.
