I have made one non-trivial edit to the hugely acclaimed answer on StackOverflow about vim shortcuts. It's mostly about harmonizing formatting, but it also slightly changes punctuation or wording in a few places to make things better.
However, this is not Wikipedia. I see far less editing of wiki content, especially by third parties. The question has 36k viewers; the answer has 8 contributors.
I've considered for some time to put a question to MSO asking to get my edit reviewed, but I really feel this is a more general problem with SO. Mind you, I don't really think the 'edit' and 'history' features deserve any more importance on the page than it currently does -- at least, not by the regular user -- still, I'm feeling quite uneasy to see my revision still being the latest for such a hugely popular question. It surely isn't perfect as it is.
Maybe the community just doesn't care. That's exactly what I'm afraid of. Maybe it feels rude to edit others' answers. Maybe the responsibility is too large. What I do know is that question is getting linked to a lot. There's a large chance that people will get their first pageview ever of SO on that answer, given the amount of buzz it has generated. And they're watching the post as I last edited it.
Holy shit am I not overthinking this one. So for the actual question bit:
Do moderators and administrators actually review edits to answers? What about regular users? Is my edit untouched because it's good, or because it has managed to slip through the cracks?
