This question already has an answer here:
On Stack Overflow I find many code snippets which are otherwise correct but will throw an error because of the case sensitive nature of the programming language it's written in (Java, Unix, etc).
I try to edit them when possible. But am asking the question because most of the time the changes are less than 6 characters and so editing is not possible. I leave comments but most are ignored.
Is it necessary for a minimum characters cap for editing? I have seen 'Title' can be edited with just one change. And reviewers can easily reject edits which are not useful.
Or will it be useful if we remove the minimum character cap for editing when it is in a code block?
Stack Overflow code snippets have helped millions (including me numerous times) and it hurts to see such trivial mistakes in them.
