Now I'm not one to quibble over minor matters (I'm quite a laissez faire type of chap), but I recently made an edit to a question, which I was surprised to see rejected, especially when I saw the alternative accepted edit.
The edit that I proposed was the following:
I saw that it was rejected by the community for reasons of a subsequent edit,
To which I thought "Fair enough, I must have missed something, my edit was not sufficient", and was going to leave it at that. However, curiosity got the better of me, and I decided to have a look at the replacement edit.
Imagine my surprise when the edit was merely to substitute a period for a comma, making it even more grammatically incorrect, whilst ignoring the obvious typos.
I understand that the OP has the overall say so when it comes to edits, but also there is the point of once you have posted something to SE, it also becomes a bit of a community effort to keep everything "spick and span".
Now I know that I am a bit of a stickler for grammar and capitalisation, and that may put people's backs up a bit, but am I missing something?
Admittedly, I did miss the
spiting (in the last paragraph) which should probably be
splitting but I don't think that was the real reason for rejection.
Hopefully this doesn't sound like a whinge, I would just like to know what the outcome in such circumstances should be.
Should the post be left as it stands, or should I attempt to retry the edits?
