The Suggested Edits Review Queue contains five buttons for actions to take on suggested edits, two of which allow the reviewing user to edit the post further.
The only difference between the "Improve Edit" and the "Reject and Edit" button is the text presented for the user to edit, and the presence/absence of the 2 reputation gained to the proposer. Usually we press "Improve" if the suggested edit was helpful, and "Reject and Edit" if it was not.
Some edits, like this one, have some good and some bad aspects of them. While editing the content of the post to be good, they also introduced minor spelling/grammar errors into the post. Either way, I was going to have to edit the post to fix it, but I did not know whether I should mark the edit as good or bad, and I clicked Reject and Edit without thinking. Now, thinking back, I probably would have marked it as a good edit were I in the same situation again.
Please provide your thoughts on whether you'd press "Improve" or "Reject + Edit" in the following situations (considering just whether we should mark the suggested edit as good or bad, not considering the amount of text you will have to edit). Some of these are quite similar, it's okay to say that you would evaluate it the same as one or more of the others:
- The suggester adds new content that clarifies the issue (without changing its meaning) but the new content has some spelling/grammar/formatting issues. The old content is left unchanged.
- The suggester adds new content that clarifies the issue (without changing its meaning) but wrongly believes that the content should be formatted differently. They change the old content to match the way they think it should be formatted (which is wrong) and the new content contains the same (wrong) style of formatting.
Example: The suggester adds new content that clarifies the issue, but capitalizes many words that should not be capitalized.
- The suggester fixes spelling/grammar/formatting issues but does not add any content that the post looks to be in dire need of.
Example: The post is in dire need of an example of an issue which is easy to provide, but the suggester fails to add that and only fixes spelling and grammar.
- The suggester fixes spelling/grammar/formatting from a horribly formatted post but adds content that does not match the issue. Example: A post is poorly formatted, almost to the point that a VLQ flag would be raised on it, but the issue is still decipherable. The suggester fixes the post up, but also adds an example that on first glance looks like it would fit well with the post, but on closer inspection seems like it would be for a different issue.
