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 tried to edit SLaks answer to this question. I just wanted to correct the name of a function (see my comment on the answer), but as I found out on meta I cannot make edits with less than six characters. Which I understand, because edits should be substantial.

The problem I had was that I didn't know why I couldn't make the edit - I didn't get any message saying I cannot make edits with less than six characters... so I checked meta.

I'm using safari. Is this a known problem? What should I do when I want to correct minor mistakes like this?

This is fixed now. Error messages weren't being shown until the "tag editor" was initialized, and since answers don't have tags, bugginess ensued. Thanks for the report.

So, should I accept Marc Gravells answer or this one? Don't know how it is supposed to be on meta yet – Philipp M Mar 4 '13 at 22:35
Accept this one, @PhilippM. Or just up-vote it. Or both. Or neither. Meta's pretty flexible that way. – Shog9 Mar 5 '13 at 3:46

Yep, it seems reluctant to show that - it works for questions (below) but not for answers. It is not specific to Safari; I am investigating.
