There's a certain type of code edit that I recognize as those that usually come from the OP. Here's an example.
In these cases the OP is trying to ensure that the answer for their question is perfect. Sometimes these code edits are accepted but often they are rejected.
okay to consider who is making the edit when deciding whether to approve it, and to give weight to the fact that it's coming from the OP? The UI doesn't give any indication that the suggested edit is coming from the OP so I'm guessing the answer is no.
If the edit isn't approved what should one do when one sees an OP trying to correct an almost-perfect answer?
- leave a comment for the OP
- suggest they self-answer (this doesn't seem to make sense, often the answer the OP is trying to edit has the green check-mark)
- make the edit on the OP's behalf
- do something else (ignore it?)
