I'm troubled about following edit:

Is it valid or invalid? https://stackoverflow.com/review/suggested-edits/2524680

It seems like the editor really went out of his or her way to clean up this post; however, the author might not even recognize it as his or her post anymore.

Should i approve or reject with "too radical" ?

    seems like it got approved already, i'm still not sure tough Commented Jul 17, 2013 at 7:32
  • I don't know enough about JavaScript, but is there a way of indenting the code without splitting it into a separate function? I mean, the <copy_above_js_function_here> part is pretty sloppy, not to mention the incorrect addition of "I am a beginner in javascript". Otherwise it is a pretty solid edit.

  • @doubleDown The problem is that it's not actually straight javascript code. It's javascript code embedded in what I'm guessing is an objective-c string. That probably limits what can be done as far as formatting within the string itself.

The edit substantially improves the question, and does not change what is being asked.

  • The code changes made an entirely unreadable block of code much more readable, and did not change the contents of the code.

  • The non-code changes helped make the question clearer, and corrected a lot of the grammatical problems - again, without changing the actual question being asked.

I would agree with the approvers that this is a good edit.

There are more corrections that could be made - such as removing incorrect backticks, but what was done was a substantial improvement. If anything, I'd suggest using the Improve button to correct the few remaining issues.


You can click on Improve button in your review session and add your clean up. You can also set check whether the suggested edit was useful or not.. I must agree the post did add too much irrelevent details like I am a beginner in javascript as well
