Today, I reviewed the following suggested edit:


The editor removed the xcode tag in this edit. I approved the edit. But on the next reviews, the same user also removed the xcode tag on different questions.

Can I approve the review? Because if I approve it, the user will think to remove the tag for all question for edit...

Retagging improperly tagged questions is generally an acceptable use of edits. However, we want to make sure that users are improving posts when they retag.

If a few edits are simply retags, it's passable (though it's still very much appreciated if you improve the post). However, if the user is editing a slew of posts, they should really be improving the post.

If you see a user retagging more than just a few posts, I highly recommended improving the post yourself, and marking the edit as unhelpful when you submit. You may also simply reject the edit as too minor, or give a custom reason.
