 Profile text area character limit

Can it be raised?

Me and my co-admin kinda... Challenged each other to write our character's history finally... And we both just blew straight through that 32.something-thousand character limit. (well over 5k words at this point, in fact) and I tried to raise the limit to 80k (and then 60k in the hopes that it would change, lol), however the limit keeps reverting to the default.

Here's her character's profile. As you can see, she had to start writing her history in the next section on the page. (Accordion structures are wonderful)

I can tweak this limit and raise it for you.

Hmm, for me at least it's still not letting me go beyond the 32,767 character limit. Just tried increasing the character limit by increments of 5k characters and it won't change. (And I get this error when trying to go past the limit in the profile, as well.)
