Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

I see a bit of a problem that you all can perhaps help me with. When editing a post, if the body length is not 30, the edit cannot be saved. The default link name "enter link description here" goes a long way to meeting this length, but is not very meaningful in an answer. If one were to give a meaningful name, it would likely have fewer characters, but may not be accepted because the 30 character limit is no longer met.

What can we do to address this? If the answer is truly this short, would it then be a candidate for a flag instead of an edit? I recently noticed over 1400 posts containing the phrase "enter link description here" and fixing some of them like enter link description here would not be possible.

Yes, I think I already flagged that one. Hopefully it will be removed soon. – demongolem Feb 22 '13 at 18:41

Link-only answers are anyway flaggable (and deletable) as Not An Answer. If the enter link description here makes a difference, it probably is something that ought to be flagged. (or fattened up with some editing)
