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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

You can approve tag wiki edits at 5,000 reputation, but you can't edit tag wikis without oversight until 20,000. So you won't see the "Improve" button on suggested edits to tag wikis and tag wiki excerpts for another 8k, give or take.

Removing tags (i.e. the name of the game) from a title is too minor an edit when the text of the question flows well with the name in it. Good Example: How do I get infinite lives in Game X? Bad Example: Game X: How do I get infinite lives? LessPop's question was of the first form, so the title should be left alone, especially as there were absolutely no ...

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 ...

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?

Your blue circles are in the wrong place. You have circled the total reviews from all users. I have drawn red circles around the values you should be considering.

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.

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 ...

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

Yes, I do believe just linking Wikipedia - among other links - does not count as attribution, because you do not mention the text is from there. It seems you agree with me now. No worries - just suggest edits to the wikis you have edited before to remove or attribute the text copied from Wikipedia. I personally believe it's better to just provide your own ...

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 ...

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 ...
