I sometimes edit questions of Stack Overflow posters to improve them. Adding some tags or reformatting messages.
It happens that my edits are rejected with the message:
"Your message is mostly code, please add more details."
And this, even if I only added a tag.
- How was the poster able to post his question, then, if its message was troublesome relative to Stack Overflow / Stack Exchange checkings?
He should not have been able to post his original message, if it's was a wrong one.
- The one who edits the post to help for a problem of reformatting the content, for example, isn't the one able to enter more explanation about its goal inside.
To the ones who added the first comments and downvoted too fast:
Take the time to read the question, you don't understand the problem.
A posted a wrong message, and I'm B editing his message, for civic duty, but I'm only to add a tag on it.
How can I be rejected while adding a tag on his message, if he, A, was able to post it?
Here is a sample of the trouble :

mysql tags to it and received the message "It looks like your post is mostly code; please add some more details."
Second example : adding an
if-statement tag, on :
I am trying To write an else if statement but the program ends on the statement. This is my code
