I created the tag proxybroker on Stack Overflow and then tried to add the excerpt and description, but I got:

An error occurred submitting the post

while trying to Save Edits.

I also tried removing the description, but it isn't working either.

Looks like the suggested edit queue was full at the time and we do a real bad job of showing a coherent error message in that case.

I'll make myself a note to look into this more when I have time, but for now, the queue numbers look good at the moment, so if you try again, it should go through.

    @PeterMortensen Funnily enough, a different issue. :) There's a null reference happening when Elasticsearch is in trouble, which is what happened a bit ago. I'll see about fixing that up.
