What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Now that the retag feture has been merged with the edit feature tag edits also have to be over 6 characters? A question can legitimately have only one character in tags? Is this an intended side effect of the change? For How to check whether STL iterator points at anything? if I click the edit link, then remove I get the error edits must be at least 6 charicters. My browser is Safari on iOS 6.0.

"Are tag edits of less than 6 characters allowed" : Have you tried ? – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd May 9 '13 at 16:53
Are you saying that tag edits now come with the same character limit as well? – BoltClock's a Unicorn May 9 '13 at 16:54
I've reproduced this behaviour on the question mentioned. – Ren May 10 '13 at 10:45

The tag has been removed by a user in December. I am marking this as completed.

Yes, they should be. Retagging doesn't character count. If not it's a bug and report as such, and perhaps the supporting text should be clearer.

Seems to be localised to a single question… so quite strange – user1937198 May 9 '13 at 17:00
@user1937198 post information on what you tried on that question, what happened, and retag this question as bug, if you are in fact experiencing this behavior. – djechlin May 9 '13 at 17:14
