Give user-creation privileges to a user
There's a small mistake (my fault): the
*.*. Changing that is only two characters. There's nothing else that warrants editing, yet that small mistake is easily important enough to fix.
Any way around this? Is this rule not a bit too harsh?

Yes, it is too harsh. Not all valid edits require 6 characters. Same story with comments. Just have a look at how many times we've added something like "(stupid 15 character minimum)" to the end of our comments.

Are you familar with Unicode?
Throw a few
U+200B's onto the end of your answer. Voila, instant 1-character edit.
