I removed cobol this morning from this post: How to do Delete/Define with using IDCAMS using batch JCL (z/VSE)
I got three rejections all saying:
This edit is incorrect or an attempt to reply to or comment on the existing post.
Am I missing something?
Is the problem the comment for the edit reason? Tagging it COBOL was only one problem with the topic/post. I didn't expect it to last long, so didn't worry about the capitalization and other stuff (even the "coding").
The "correct" way to write JCL is to one's own site standards. The "correct" way to define VSAM files is to one's own site standards. Asking and taking stuff from the internet is going to be a waste of time/cause trouble. Rats, I'm going to get the "two questions in one" problem if I continue down that route...
So, can a suggested edit be rejected due to the comment on the edit? Either by rule, or accepted practice?
I've now looked at the Close flag. Doesn't seem that that is going to happen. If it is like Cricket and the benefit of the doubt goes to the poster (batsman), then a flag to close is going to be tricky. JCL is a tool. IDCAMS is a tool. The fact that no Mainframe site is going to be happy for their people to just toss stuff from the internet into their systems doesn't fit within the Help Centre thing. Just edit the lot and comment I suppose :-)
Yoy, now I've edited it again and got some extra Reputation. Feels a little unjust, but I'm sure it'll offset against losing something unjustly somewhere.
For a one-second tag-deletion, this is too much :-)
