I recently got curious about whats been going on with my edits, and thanks to: How can I see all my rejected edits?
I can see whats been happening. In particular, I can see: http://stackoverflow.com/review/suggested-edits/1155043
Here my edit is pretty basic: I've tried the code, it didn't work, I realised that "arrayWithObjects must be nil terminated" and I've gone ahead and edited the answer. There were no comments about the question/answer to cloud the issue. I'm sure my edit was useful and correct, and the rejecting editors have got it wrong.
Note the official documentation: https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Cocoa/Reference/Foundation/Classes/NSArray_Class/NSArray.html and especially the bit:
A comma-separated list of objects ending with nil.
I don't particularly care about that, but I thought that this might be a good opportunity for SO to do some useful self review.
I notice that the rejecting editors have a pretty high rejection rate. In particular, one editor has "
approved 283 edit suggestions and rejected 262 edit suggestions", another
approved 191 edit suggestions and rejected 141 edit suggestions" and the other "
approved 621 edit suggestions and rejected 358 edit suggestions".
I'm not sure what the payoff would be for making numerous edit rejects(?) Perhaps camouflage for some naughtiness(?) Anyhow, anyone know whats up with this?
I've had a quick look at: Is anyone monitoring people rejecting good edits or approving bad ones? BTW.
