I tried to retag this question to add the and tags, but it wouldn't let me submit my edit because it said that it was less than 6 characters:

enter image description here

At first I thought that it was because of this issue because I accidentally did something in the body without noticing, so I clicked Cancel and then tried to edit again and it did the same thing. I tried again and again and always got the same problem. So I'm sure that I didn't touch the body, only the tags.

The strange thing is that I successfully submitted another retag today and several retags in the past without getting this problem, and I regularly see tag edits on Stack Overflow where I have the privilege to review suggested edits, so normally edits just editing the tags should be allowed.

Is there a reason why I couldn't submit this specific retag without editing the body while I've submitted many other retags in the past without any problem? If this is a bug, please fix it.

  • You shouldn't be editing that question at all. Your edit doesn't improve the question at all and the question has already been flagged/closed as a duplicate.

    First, if you are using #windows you shouldn't also use a version specific tag like #windows-xp its one or the other. the #windows tag should be avoided when possible because its to generic. While that is the case, retagging a question that has been closed for 7 years as a duplicate, doesn't really do anything to improve the quality of that question. If anything you should have only used #windows to matcht the tag of the duplicate question.
