There are many issues surrounding suggested edits and edit reviews.
I understand editing is addresses in the help section, however there is debate over what is considered minor or not.
Part of the motivation for people to suggest edits is for rep and badges. For reviews, is badges. For many others, we are pedantic and like seeing tidy posts.
I suggest the following:
Editing tags is given a separate badge. That tag edits do not earn any rep, but still gives a badge, to motivate those who are goal completion driven (as that is what badges are about).
The minimum edit length is removed for users with >eg 250 rep. So that if there is an obvious typo in the title or such, it can be edited, without the user having to find other parts of the post to edit to get it submitted. This will reduce the number of poor edits. These could also give no reward of rep, but contribute towards a badge.
Minor edits, involving removal of salutation are also permissible, but do not give rep and can become a badge category of there own, of eg "automated maniac", "human detector and annihilator" or "post cleaner" ;-)
The above "minor edits" could be given a separate review queue. The problem with this is the motivation for reviewers to review such post, so maybe not.
- I think there needs to be reviews of reviewers with eg <3000 rep. As I am noticing people can churn through reviews allow edits that shouldn't be approved. I do understand that this could become a set of reviews of reviews of reviews adfinitum. However, I think as users grow in rep, there motivation to gain more rep settles into a better frame of good quality programming posts, rather than trying to obtain user privileges and "power", etc.
- The rep required to earn privileges needs to be raised, this will sort out some of the issues. As, a general rule, increasing longevity of membership and rep, would be linked with usefulness and responsibility towards the site. This could have a twofold- putting more load on moderators and higher rep users. Take away much of the load, as there wouldn't be so many low quality edits to review.
I am happy for people to edit this post and add links of examples, etc. Please contribute constructively.
