Number of characters not recognised when posting a YouTube video on React

Problem Summary
Number of characters not recognised when posting a YouTube video on React

Problem Details
When you post a YouTube video on React via the button and you don’t bother to add any more text you get a message saying that your post must be at least 2 characters long.

But when posting on showthread 2 you don’t get this issue and I can post the YouTube video via the button just fine (I don’t need to add additional text).

Thanks, I don’t whether you type the BBcode manually on React this happens or not.
