Creating a Forum User Guideline Thread
Okay for anyone else wanting to use a longer user guidelines I was able to do this by going into my add.php file and at line 20 look for this HTMLForm::check('content', 1, 14000). It was originally set at 4000 so I increased it to 14000 to allow me to create my user guidelines and than changed it back to the default.

Another way is to create a smaller post and then open it up inside a text editor like notepad++ and make the changes there. The posts can be found inside the data>>topics folder. You don't have to change the default character limit in add.php this way.
