I noticed that Moher was misspelled twice in a post, which could make searches a nuisance, so I attempted to correct the two instances, however, I received this message:

Oops! Your edit couldn't be submitted because:

Edits must be at least 6 characters; is there something else to improve in this post?

The post is fine, any other changes would be tampering for the sake of it.

Place names are particularly important in a Travel forum, I reckon, so it should be possible to make such changes.

    You always can comment the post to point out the error. – VMAtm Aug 25 '11 at 8:16

    Sure, so when you come to search for that place, will it come up? I do not think so. – Remou Aug 25 '11 at 8:18

I don't think we need to allow small suggested edits. Users with high rep can edit posts as they want, and you always have three things available to do:

  1. Flag post to the moderate attention with spell error explanation.
  2. Comment out the post to post owner or some user with high rep edit the post.
  3. Mostly preferred - make great suggested edit! See what can you add to the post. For this exactly post you can simply add a link to the Cliffs of Moher](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cliffs_of_Moher), and your edit will be accepted.
  4. Earn more reputation to be available to edit other people's posts.

    We don’t run Stack Overflow. The community does.
