Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

150 characters seems like quite a lot on the face of it, but I've repeatedly exceeded this limit when explaining to a user why I'm rejecting their edit.

For instance, on this edit, I was hoping to write:

Please don't add hi/thanks/salutations; see meta.stackoverflow.com/q/2950/16386, but even then I'd have rejected this as "Too minor: suggested edits should be substantive improvements addressing multiple issues in the post."

Yes I could have shortened it to:

See meta.stackoverflow.com/q/2950/163863, but even then I'd have rejected it as too minor.

But we shouldn't be held back from teaching/helping users because of a basic character limit. (and this is just an example... there have been situations where I've had to omit useful information to the user just to go below 150 chars).
