I am puzzling over this edit which appears to be less than 6 characters. In a recent edit that I suggested I had to change a punctuation mark to make it pass muster. Of course I could have also used some tricks to circumvent the character change limit. I am aware of that. But that edit at issue doesn't appear to include extra characters. So how did it happen?

  • I think when you get 2000 rep you can unilaterally make edits of any size. Not far to go for you now :-) Feb 1, 2021 at 23:23
  • @user3856370 Haha, that's true. I can do unilateral edits on two sites now, and am looking forward to Japanese SE becoming the third one. Still like to feed my curiosity though. :)
