I couldn't send a PM because computer said no and told me: "You have exceeded the limit of 5 personal messages per hour."
Is this something new?

I wasn't aware that was a thing. I have never received a spam message.

Most of the time that limit won't be a problem, but it can be when you are e.g. conversing with two or more users.
Then the limit of five PMs is very restricting, and also the waiting time of an hour is very long.

Perhaps change it to something like 8 posts in 30 minutes?

While I've never received spam as a PM, I can see the point of increasing the number of PMs and reducing the time frame. It would be useful when one is in a back and forth with another user/users.

I am trying to update my "functions for virtual tags cheatsheet" post here:

https://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=35868.msg196257#msg196257

But by adding some new functions and explanations, I am surpassing the maximum allowed character count for a post.
(the limit is 20.000, and I am heading towards 23.000)

Could this limit be increased to e.g. 25.000 characters?

edit
Never mind, I see I also have post#2
I will split #1 up and use #2 for the rest.

Much appreciated, but in this case it looks like it might actually be an improvement splitting it up in two…
