I was reviewing suggested edits and came across a suggested edit from an anonymous to a highly upvoted answer dated 2008.
I rarely make a decision when it comes to edits on answers, I usually skip and let the author decide whether to accept or reject the edit. But this time I thought let me investigate.
After some research I verified the edit was right and I thought it should add more value to the answer, so I approved it. After a minute or so the edit was rejected for it could be that This edit changes too much in the original post; the original meaning or intent of the post would be lost.
So I wanted to know if what I did was the right thing to do. And wondering if suggested edits on answers should only be accepted/rejected by the author or someone who is relatively experienced in the content the answer addresses.
I took Matt's advice and rejected an edit that seemed like "putting words in the OP's mouth", But the edit got approved by other reviewers.
