I know this isn't immediately an extremely specific question, but here is the rest of the explanation. I saw somebody edited my question, and they really screwed it up. I spent over an hour composing the question, and read it countless times so it would be clear, concise, and understandable. But the 'edits' that I saw they made, or tried to make, were absolutely horrendous and made the question convoluted and confusing. In fact I am not even sure the person understood the basic tenants of English grammar, that's how bad it was. But I didn't see the 'edited version' when I looked at my question, only when I looked at the 'edits' they did.
- When somebody 'edits' my page, whom does the 'edited version' show up to?
- Is there any possible way to prevent somebody from editing my question? Because English is obviously a rather unique language in the sense that multiple meanings can come from very similar words and phrases. Therefore I choose my words very carefully and I mean exactly what I want them to. The person that 'edited' one question in particular had no apparent idea what I was asking, and ended up making the 'edited version' difficult to read, and only complicated the issue due to making the question difficult to read, and therefore difficult to understand.
- Why in the world would this forum allow people to edit questions in which they clearly don't understand. Both not understanding the nature of the question, and in at least one of my cases, not even understanding the basic tenants of English grammar.
Thank you to anybody who read my above proclamations, I've been wondering about this sort of thing for quite awhile. But until it really affected me I didn't care enough to ask.
