I am trying to merge my Stack Overflow account http://stackoverflow.com/users/1294802 with my other account (unregistered) http://stackoverflow.com/users/1194859/unni-kris. But when I am trying to flag one of my post for moderator attention for merging the account, I am getting an error
"Your message must be longer than 10 characters."

I have added more than ten characters.
Format : Please help to merge my account1 link to account2 link

Please help. This happens in IE7.

So, nave question follows: What did you type in as message? –  Lasse V. Karlsen Apr 3 '12 at 13:35
I'm pretty sure it means that your message must be longer than 10 characters. –  CoffeeRain Apr 3 '12 at 13:37
Ok - then this is a bug, right? What browser / version? –  jadarnel27 Apr 3 '12 at 13:45
i am using IE 7 browser –  Unni Kris Apr 3 '12 at 13:45
I have added the [bug] tag for you. I cannot reproduce the problem in IE9 set to IE7 mode. –  jadarnel27 Apr 3 '12 at 13:52
IE7 is now unsupported by us - is there any way for you to upgrade or use a different browser? In other news, I've merged your two users, so at least that part is done. –  Jarrod Dixon Apr 3 '12 at 14:28
@Jarrod thanks for merging the accounts. I wil start using firfox then. –  Unni Kris Apr 4 '12 at 3:54

1 Answer 1

Try writing more than 10 characters into the text field, like e.g:

Please merge this account with my other account at [link]

I'm trying to think of how one would request this in less than 10 characters... –  jadarnel27 Apr 3 '12 at 13:39
@jadarnel27 merge plx –  lunboks Apr 3 '12 at 13:44
I guess it might be a bug (according to the OPs update), although I cannot reproduce it. –  jadarnel27 Apr 3 '12 at 13:53
There should be a canned summary like "Fix typos". –  giorgian Aug 7 '13 at 10:40
@giorgian If you're using flags to ask mods to fix typos, you're doing it wrong in the first place –  Mad Scientist Aug 7 '13 at 10:52
