How long is too long for a set up?

I'm going to say it, is it too long for a site like this? Should I break them down into smaller fights or keep them?

However i would also suggest that you add a short recap at the very bottom, for the users who have too short an attention span to read a long setup.

I like the idea of breaking it up into numerous matches. After all, they will only be up for three days.
But of course, its a free country and you should do what you figure needs to be done to present a good story for the other members. If it's long, it's long.

One of the main critisicms I get on my setups is that I should do more with it (longer). In trying to give people what they want, I've opened up on story a little (still not enough apparaently) and then do the fight paramaters at the end in case people don't care about the story but will still know what they need to know to vote intelligently.
Yeah, I see that, too. Many people want to see more detail in your matches, more reason behind why the characters are working together or fighting. What they may not understand, though, is that many of your matches are part of long, ongoing arcs, and that recapping the history of your arcs may be pretty hard to do. I've read and commented on many of your matches, so I know where your arcs are, but I can still see where somebody new to your matches may be coming from.
To help prevent confusion with your future arcs, maybe include links to the previous matches in new matches of said arcs.
As for the topic, length doesn't really much matter from what I've seen. Lord knows my upcoming match might be my longest yet. What seems to matter more is the quality of the match and, to a fairly large extent, the current popularity of the characters used.
