My fault. Sorry! I have seen that it was tag-only edit, and usually we expect a little bit more from a suggested edit. But … the post is good otherwise, there isn't anything else that needs improvement, so I misjudged this case. Please try again, and thank you for your patience. :)

Usually when code is posted as answers it's as direct and to the point as possible. Like many code-related Stack Exchange sites users come into the answers and copy / paste the solution. To copy / paste the solution the end user would need to then remove the line number to add it to their codebase. The same could be said about the PHP tags. When explaining ...

First, thank you for trying to help! :) Second, please don't take these rejections personally.

Is it OK if I only add (or remove) tags for my edit suggestion? Yes. We all try to get tags "clean" from time to time. The more people jump in and "adopt" a tag, the better. Am I wrong in those minor changes? A "minor" edit was defined as "less than 6 characters". Yours was 7 :) While it was technically correct, and I tend to agree with such edits, ...

It appears this message is not set by WPSE admins but by StackExchange in general. It's wording has been discussed at length in meta, without any consequences.
