No. If you feel that the post is improved by the edit, then the edit should stay. If I edit a fact into your answer, it means that I agree with everything you've said, I probably don't think I could've worded it better, and that the post can be that much better with this point you might've missed. Especially since we tend to delete "duplicate answers" (a ...

The proper definition of a Too Minor edit is this: There is no such thing. There are only Too Minor suggested edits. And they have two reasons behind them. Firstly, as others have pointed out, the suggestor gets two Rep, and that isn't something that should be handed out for teensy tiny little things like the edit you pointed out. And secondly, there's also ...

Sometimes bad edits get approved when they shouldn't. On the other hand, good edits sometimes get rejected when they shouldn't too. The latter is what's happened in this instance. There's nothing wrong with the edit that you made, and it certainly didn't deviate from the original intent of the post. Indeed, as others have mentioned, a diamond moderator ...

This is because your edit needs to go through peer approval before it can be applied. The minimum length feature provides a "must be this tall to ride" level of minimum significance so that our 2kers (people who can review suggested edits) don't get swamped by dozens of tiny edits. People with 2k reputation, btw, get to edit any amount of characters of any ...

Oof, didn't see this until it's been voted up and I've already been vilified. Sure wish I got a ping about it. Anyway, making this a post so it can have proper replies and voting, not just comment replies and upvotes in the parent thread. I voted a reject because the post is both effectively a duplicate of another answer, and entirely incorrect. I'm ...

I'm not going to comment on the post that motivated this question. I didn't even look at it, and it sounds like the edit was accepted eventually, anyway. I'll address the actual issue, instead: Just because an answer should be deleted as it stands doesn't mean that any and all possible future versions of the answer would be deleted as well. Therefore, until ...

I believe the reject reason here is inappropriate, as I would've rejected it as "clearly conflicting with author's intent". The edit adds information that is not just supplement to the provided answer, but another trick or strategy that the author had not included, either because they didn't believe it is a good strategy, or because they hadn't thought of it....

First, I think we should clear some things up: Moderators Recently an edit was proposed to one of my answers but before I got chance to review it, the edit was rejected by two moderators. Firstly, it wasn't an action taken by Moderators, just regular users with the Review Suggested Edits Privilege, or >= 2000 rep. Moderators are users with a diamond (♦) ...

You can't suggest reviews anymore now that you've reached 2000 reputation. The system (and the users who voted for your posts) trusts you to have learned how editing works by now, by having your suggested edits approved or rejected, and by seeing the edits of other users who have earned the same privilege as you. And frankly, the system seems to be working ...

Your edit ban is temporary, and you'll be resume making suggested edits again next week. In the meantime, though, you might want to take some time to ask yourself why your edits were rejects, or you might find yourself suspended from edits again. I can see by looking at your history, though, that you might want to take a look at this meta post, and also ...

As per this question on MSO, there seems to have been an issue with tags on suggested edits that briefly got pushed out today; the code is apparently already fixed so that it won't happen again.


7

Yeah this edit makes complete sense, so I've mod-approved it. Perhaps the reviewers thought it was the first use of the tag, given your edit description. Either way, it's approved now.


6

If you have the reputation to review suggested edits, you have the reputation to pull up the post in question and hit the rollback button. (If a second person has approved it, that is. This is, of course, part of the reason that it takes two approvals for a suggestion to go through.)

Going through your history, most of them were rejected because you were changing the language, but also other trivial things that were not required to hit the character limit, or the edits missed out key things to also edit and change. These are grounds to be rejected and normally updated by a user who has the privilege to do the edit without going through ...

TLDR: Don't focus on the giving of rep, focus on signalling to the editor whether their action was useful/helpful or not. You are focusing on the wrong thing. Don't focus on the giving of rep (you only give rep when you award a bounty), focus on the edit. The first thing to do is to decide is this edit good or not. To see if it is a good edit, lets looks at ...

Editing and reviewing edits has been a thing for a very long time. Anyone can propose edits, and if you have over 2,000 reputation or are a moderator, your edit will be automatically applied for everyone to see. If you have under 2,000 reputation, your suggested edit will be put in a review queue for people with over 2,000 reputation to review. Note: it ...

That edit was not rejected; it was approved. You cast a reject vote, after which it was still in limbo. Then two other users cast approve votes, giving it the 2 votes necessary and which resulted in an approval. So...everything seems fine?

No: you'll have to apply the edit by hand. It's easier if you switch the view from rendered output to markdown. If you want to give credit, simply link to the edit author's profile page.

The "too minor" rejection reason has been removed. The current advice is to either reject as incorrect (if applicable), or improve the edit if there's more to be improved. See this answer for details.

This has been fixed on March 6th, 2019: Starting with the next build, we'll be showing an error message same way as we do on regular question pages:

What is the appropriate action for editing an answer that was rejected by the community? If you have full editing privileges, you can perform the edit (or a better version of the edit!) yourself. But if you're unsure if it's the right thing to do, raising it on meta like you have is also a good choice. For non-obvious spam links (like the Xfire link became)...

The user can see if their edit was rejected or approved, and can see the reasons given by the people who did the reviews. If you have old reviews of your own, you can do this as well, whether or not you have edit privileges. You can list your reason for rejection and the user will see that if they review their edit. Also see this M.SE post

Since Robotnik didn't provide a full answer... No, you should not be rejecting these edits. The minecraft tag is useful to these questions because our default tagging scheme is to tag a question with the game. Minecraft is that game, so there is no reason for that tag to not be there. (Mea culpa, there is at least one instance (mentioned above) where I ...

I think this is the same issue as in a question on Meta Stack Overflow: When OP clicks [edit] while someone suggested an edit, the suggested edit gets used and the edit rejected. Steps to reproduce: Open some of your own posts and don't touch that page until step 4. Someone suggests an edit to your post (in this case I did it myself as anonymous)...

Wrigglenite's answer covers the feature request side of things so I'll just address the act of editing itself: Is there some way to request peer review on an edit? You already are!...kinda. Every edit you make bumps that question to the front page, complete with a little 'modified by <UserName>' message and link that takes users directly to the ...

I was one of those who rejected your edit from the review queue. The main reason is: I don't think most of the answer should've been hidden under spoiler markup / formatting. As per the top-voted answer in this meta post: Is editing a question to use the Spoiler format acceptable?: The question and the answers must make sense and be complete without using ...

No, such an option does not exist. Once you finished reviewing an item, you cannot change your decision. Don't worry, mistakes like this happen; that's one of the reasons two approvals/rejections are necessary for a final verdict on the edit.


3

You can't unilaterally reject an edit. It was actually approved 2-1 in favor of accepting the edit. The only time you can unilaterally reject an edit is if you use the reject and edit button, then it will be rejected by community, and your edit will be put instead.

Come on now. Editing in out of date disclaimers is about the only tool we have left to mark obsolete information, as a startling portion of the user base would rather simply let old, incorrect information stand, rather than actually caring about site curation and pruning them. I have edited in your disclaimer. It will probably get rolled back, because double ...
