While reviewing the suggested edits queue, I ran across a number of new tag wiki excerpts from the same user, all starting with "For issues relating to". For example:
- gantt: For issues relating to creating or displaying gantt charts.
- divide-by-zero: For issues relating to handling or preventing divide by zero operations.
- findall: For issues relating to utilizing FindAll operations.
- window-resize: For issues relating to programatically or manually resizing application windows.
- delphi-3: For issues related to development in Delphi, version 3.
- delphi-4: For issues related to development in Delphi, version 4.
- delphi-6: For issues related to development in Delphi, version 6.
- outlook-2003: For issues relating to integrating with Microsoft Outlook, release 2003.
I believe that the prefixing phrase "For issues relating to" is unnecessary (what would it be, issues not related to?), and is just cluttering up the small tag-wiki box that could be put to better use adding more context. So, I rejected a few of these edits as
"For issues relating to" is not necessary, and is just clutter.
Some of these edits were rejected, but most were approved. Curious, I went and looked at that user's suggested edits, and saw a whole slew of edits along these same lines. I'd estimate, at a glance, that about 200-250 of that user's 1,200 (!) suggested edits have been to tag wiki excerpts, and most of those include that phrase. I've seen this phrase crop up a bunch in wiki excerpts, and wondered if this was accepted policy. I now believe this user's responsible for most of these.
- Is this an acceptable phrase to include in tag wiki excerpts?
- If it's not, what's the appropriate thing to do? Should I not worry about it, what's done is done? If it's something worthy of cleanup, it's too much to do manually, and would likely get me flagged (rightly) as a vigilante, editing 200 posts in one go.
