Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This link describes my goal and I am currently working on it (2.06% done so far). Below given are the questions that I have rephrased in the best of interests that I think would serve the community better. I would like to know if I am going overboard with this whole rephrasing questions thing.

  • Did I do something that I shouldn't have done? If so, please comment where I went wrong so I can correct my mistakes.

I have given the initial question against row From and the question that it has been rephrased to against To and the reason why I did rephrased them against the row Reason. I appreciate your inputs. Complete status of what I am doing can be found here.

Excellent work (at least I think so). If a question is tagged SSIS already, it may be redundant to put that in the title. The only reason you would need it would be if SSIS were peripherally related to the topic in an unusual way. – jonsca Jul 26 '11 at 19:07
By volume, this isn't "going overboard." However -- and this is quite subjective -- some people would say that your improved titles could stand to be improved further. – Pops Jul 26 '11 at 19:08
@Popular True. I think it's a great effort, in any case. – jonsca Jul 26 '11 at 19:19
I think all these edits are fine; though I would go a step further and make the titles into questions themselves. +1 – Billy ONeal Jul 26 '11 at 23:37

You probably already know this, but I'll just mentioned the question titles you changed where I believe you had the greatest impact. This might allow you to prioritize or reduce the amount of work you have to do. The remaining edits I haven't mentioned I would consider "optional" edits.

These are the "non-titles," the ones that desperately need editing because they don't mean anything.

Thanks for your input. Yes, I agree. Anyway, I will be going through every question under ssis. I would like to make them look consistent. My thoughts were to present the questions in the best possible manner even for non-SO users who might come across this in search engine results. I just pointed out only the questions but I am also going through every answer to make sure they look perfect. I like the community and I would like to make it better for others too. One tag at a time! – user162697 Jul 26 '11 at 20:00
