I see that another round of "lets tidy up" has happened, at least around the Perl tag. I'm all for removing "thanks"es and getting the tags correct, but it brings up a wave of old questions that will tempt people into answering. Can't there be a way to say "I'm editing, but leave it inactive"? I propose a button next to
edit that says,
edit-but-inactive or some such.
As I type I see that this has been asked in several ways: Feature request: Trivial-edit checkbox and Should all answer edits make old questions look "active"? but neither is quite exactly what I'm asking, and the problem keeps popping up.
