When should the edit rejection option, "Edit does not address the fundamental issues." be used? I hadn't seen this one before, and it was used on this edit. I think that this case was an improper use of it, but I can't find any clarification elsewhere on the site defining when this should be used.


Reviewers can enter a free-form reason when they reject an edit, and that's what happened here. This allows reviewers to provide more specific guidance than the predefined reasons.

In this case, I don't see how the reason is more informative that using the predefined “too minor” reason would be.

I would have accepted this edit. Regardless of whether it addresses all the issues, this edit addresses at least two major issues: it formats the code, and makes the text comprehensible at first glance.

  • Maybe denoting that an edit rejection comment was custom would be helpful. – fvrghl Jul 9 '13 at 23:32
