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

    I think it's still fairly neutral. So I would not really worry about it. Feel free to change it though if you like.

    It doesn't imply you disagree, "Why is the sky blue" doesn't imply that I think the sky shouldn't be Sep 13, 2013 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.

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" Sep 13, 2013 at 11:53
  • Yes, in this case. but usually I observed retags were reject as too minor Sep 13, 2013 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 yes, even I search using tags and that is really helpful to filter out. Sep 13, 2013 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 yes... retag is as important as edit. Even I am in favor of retag seperate queue for review. Sep 13, 2013 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..

    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. Sep 14, 2013 at 0:09
