I am trying to merge my Stack Overflow account https://stackoverflow.com/users/1294802 with my other account (unregistered) https://stackoverflow.com/users/1194859/unni-kris. But when I am trying to flag one of my post for moderator attention for merging the account, I am getting an error
"Your message must be longer than 10 characters."

I have added more than ten characters.
Format : Please help to merge my account1 link to account2 link

Please help. This happens in IE7.

    I'm pretty sure it means that your message must be longer than 10 characters.

  • I have added the [bug] tag for you. I cannot reproduce the problem in IE9 set to IE7 mode. Apr 3, 2012 at 13:52

    IE7 is now unsupported by us - is there any way for you to upgrade or use a different browser? In other news, I've merged your two users, so at least that part is done. Apr 3, 2012 at 14:28
  • @Jarrod thanks for merging the accounts. I wil start using firfox then.

Try writing more than 10 characters into the text field, like e.g:

Please merge this account with my other account at [link]

    I'm trying to think of how one would request this in less than 10 characters... Apr 3, 2012 at 13:39

  • I guess it might be a bug (according to the OPs update), although I cannot reproduce it. Apr 3, 2012 at 13:53
  • There should be a canned summary like "Fix typos".

  • @giorgian If you're using flags to ask mods to fix typos, you're doing it wrong in the first place Aug 7, 2013 at 10:52
