# Why must edits have at least six characters?

I wanted to correct one letter in a name. This was impossible because there was only this one typo. So the typo persists. Shouldn't this rule be dropped?

You should try to find other substantive improvements to the post which would raise the edit above that limit, or leave a comment mentioning the error. If there really are no other issues, there are hackish ways to add characters which don't display anything, like [](123456) but I recommend avoiding these if at all possible. Personally I'd be very likely to reject an edit like that unless it is crucial and obviously correct.
