I just noticed that a question I was keeping an eye on was edited, but while the edit fixed a thing or two, it actually made some of the grammar worse within the question.
I could edit the question to correct it, but I would also like to use the review mechanism built into StackExchange to relay back to that user that their edit was grammatically incorrect.
This questionable edit was made by a user with a substantial amount of rep (>20k). I have the feeling that perhaps they are doing this to other questions as well, which does not seem good for the community. I doubt that they know what they are doing is wrong.
What is the proper way to handle a situation like this. Should there be the ability to review edits of someone with >20k rep in the post?
Edit: as animuson mentioned, this functionality is currently only implemented for users with <2k rep. So, I suppose that I am suggesting adding the ability to review user edits in the post even when a user has >20k rep. The workaround animuson and others stated is to add a comment that mentions (
@'s) them. I think this is a good idea if the edit was really terrible. psubsee2003 suggests adding a comment and then deleting it immediately, so that a notification will be sent. But, in cases of what might look like grammar nitpicking, I think even a temporary comment would be distracting to those that are just interested in the question itself and not grammatically-incorrect edits. In any case though, it seems that the user that sees this problem should just make the correction.
