# Why are one letters edits frowned upon? I often have single letter fixes for LaTeX code

I often see people write stuff like $cos(\theta)$, were I'd like to a \. The system does not let me make such a tiny edit.

Is it so that the peer review queue is not filled with so many edits?

Simply, there always is something else that you can fix. You are taking up the time of two approvers -- it is better to make it thorough. (Of course, for LaTeX edits not much time is taken; there isn't any need to read the whole post) – Manishearth Feb 5 '13 at 2:23
Yeah think about all the time saved if everyone made two edits instead of one. Think abotu the time time saved – raindrop Feb 19 '13 at 19:36
@Raindrop: Definitly. What what if I only see one edit? – Martin Ueding Feb 21 '13 at 12:35
Perhaps stackexchange could let users with high reputation make single edits. Perhaps edits by people with high reputation would only need 1 approval instead of 2. Perhaps single letter edits should only require 1 approval instead of 2. – raindrop Feb 22 '13 at 23:15
