Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

If I edit my Area 51 proposal and I exceed the limit of chars, I have to wait 30 seconds to try again.

For example, I edited my Gardening Proposal to add landscaping. When I was done I saved and was told I was over the 255 char limit. So I deleted a sentence and saved again. It then told me that I can only edit a post once every 30 seconds.

But I had not really edited my post. At least this should be changed to say you can only submit an edit every 30 seconds.

The same thing happens with comments that are too short/long – Michael Mrozek Jul 26 '10 at 18:28

This is fixed now. We now show character counters when editing proposals and questions, and submission is disabled if the input is too short or too long.
