I had suggested the following edit: https://stackoverflow.com/review/suggested-edits/2919761

I think my edit is appropriate because the question relates to ASP.NET and certainly not classic ASP.

I don't have any problem with its rejection. I just want to know if I have done anything wrong. If so, then just let me know what I take care about before suggesting any edit?

  • @Bart Thx for the edit i will take care of this from the next time – Dhaval Sep 13 '13 at 11:38
  • @Bart only one thing .. i dont have any problem with edit rejection so i have chose title "Have i done anything wrong" but with current title it looks like i have problem with rejection and i am asking why it got rejected ?? – Dhaval Sep 13 '13 at 11:41

    I think it's still fairly neutral. So I would not really worry about it. Feel free to change it though if you like. – Bart Sep 13 '13 at 11:42

    It doesn't imply you disagree, "Why is the sky blue" doesn't imply that I think the sky shouldn't be – Richard Tingle Sep 13 '13 at 11:43

    I'm guessing they rejected it because they don't have a clue about the edit being correct or not because they don't know the technology. They should have skipped it instead. – Stijn Sep 13 '13 at 11:49
  • @RichardTingle It could be red... – Cole Johnson Sep 13 '13 at 13:56

I think you were right in editing.

But some reviewers find tag changes too minor and reject them which is wrong. This should not be done this way. I even supported the separate queue for retag reviews. As it is important to retag, it helps in filtering posts.

I have retagged that question.

    Although all the rejects are for "This edit is incorrect or an attempt to reply to or comment on the existing post." rather than "too minor" – Richard Tingle Sep 13 '13 at 11:53
  • Yes, in this case. but usually I observed retags were reject as too minor – Zaheer Ahmed Sep 13 '13 at 11:54
  • but tags helps a lot as most users will look for new question in their expertise area so it will be much helpful if you have right tags attached with your question – Dhaval Sep 13 '13 at 11:57
  • @Dhaval yes, even I search using tags and that is really helpful to filter out. – Zaheer Ahmed Sep 13 '13 at 11:58
  • @ZaheerAhmed Updating tags are a great way for the question to pop into the right queue where it will get the views it needs - and at the same time probably one of the ways that the site is optimized to work with search engines. I would think that correcting tags is certainly not too minor a change if appropriate. – Fluffeh Sep 13 '13 at 12:00

    @Fluffeh yes... retag is as important as edit. Even I am in favor of retag seperate queue for review. – Zaheer Ahmed Sep 13 '13 at 12:02

    Separate review for retag only edit is just needless since suggested edit review does the same. Additional review, additional badges, additional complains etc.. – hims056 Sep 13 '13 at 12:24

    So the big question - is there any official stance on whether all retags should be rejected or not? It's ridiculous that cleaning up tags half the time gets your suggested edit rejected. – Qantas 94 Heavy Sep 14 '13 at 0:09
