Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Often I am seeing suggested edits that should be comments. E.g.

Edited does not work in when i pass button in withObject..

Added at the end of a post

Can we have some easy way to convert a suggested edit into a comment and/or a suggested comment system.

If the suggested edit is by the OP & is clarification on the question, it should be approved as an edit. Otherwise it should be flat out rejected. – Sathya Jul 29 '11 at 9:23
Sometimes, it would be a useful commnet like "xxx did not work for me" so that other people did not spend a long time trying to do what the answer says. – Ian Ringrose Jul 29 '11 at 10:01
Ditto this: these comments are sometimes worth saving. For the really good ones I've started adding a comment myself, linking to the user and suggested edit and quoting the change, but the workflow could be easier. If the user makes a single contiguous addition to the text it'd be useful to have the option of converting it to a comment attributed to that user. (but I realise this is possibly a corner case and there's bigger problems to deal with, e.g. all these "improve formatting" editors who bold random words and code-tag others.) – Rup Feb 22 '12 at 15:18
