To my surprise, I tried to add a couple of tags to this question but the edit was automatically rejected with an error message about how the changes must be at least 6 characters long, pointing to the body of the question. Is this a thing now or did I do womething wrong?

Edit: I tried to add a screenshot in the present question and guess what? It was rejected with the message "body is missing"...

  • $\begingroup$ @Chris just tried once more and the same thing happened. (I've done the same kind of edit succesfully several times before.) Also, please take a look at the edit in the present question. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Did you leave an edit summary? I can't remember if that's required, but it's worth a try. Otherwise, it sounds like a bug, and you should ask about it on the mother meta, after reading the suggestions here. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ (Partially)Replicated on Chrome. I wasn't able to suggest an edit with the question you mentioned, but was able to (suggest an) edit with this question. Weird. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ (Continued)..... In the revision history, you'll see that I have edited more than just tags, but actually I had first suggested the edit with just changed tags, but modified it before the OP approved. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Chris yes I left a summary. I tried again just now, because of the possible cache problem that the link mentions, but the exact same thing happened... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Helen Make a post on the mother meta about it then. Especially if Eagle has the same problem, it's likely this is a reproducible bug the developers can look into. $\endgroup$
