I recently made this suggested edit to an answer to fit with the edit that had been made to the question (being specific about Apple's UK Support site).

My suggested edit

An edit was then made to add the region to the link, however the incorrect region was added (US instead of UK).

@bmike's edit

As per the guidelines, I should avoid trivial, tiny one-letter edits, and suggested edits must be longer than 6 characters anyway.

Am I overlooking something?

In this case - false information trumps the general prohibition to make a trivial edit. Sadly, the system won't even let us fix that one typo so we have to change more or use two edits to effect a one character change.

I wouldn't roll back, but just edit it correct going forward.

Great catch.

btw - that bmike fellow often is on an iPad and making silly typos when trying to improve a suggested edit

    What should I do about the "Edits must be at least 6 characters"?

    The main reason why I suggested a rollback is because of the character requirement for suggested edits.

    I too was hobbled by the character requirement, so I made sure to improve things with some more details that I know to be true (like chat windows are only drawn when people are scheduled to be chatting).
