This question already has an answer here:
I made a few small edits in the past few days that fixed code snippets posted on SO and I'm curious if I'm misunderstanding the rules. Bringing it to meta because some are getting approved, others rejected -- in one case, the edit was approved twice, rejected 3 times -- and each of the rejections was for a different reason (!).
These are not super extensive edits - mostly library dependencies. But they turn code that doesn't run on the first time into code that does run -- which, as I understand it, was one of the reasons that SO was created (enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow, etc.) They aren't huge edits, but they are definitely improvements - so why all the rejections?
