Activity and resulting reputation

Anything a normal user can do to stop that?

Narrowing down the edits (some people simply clicked one or two and said oh, nothing wrong with that)

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16

so 16 out of 20 is a good ratio? Is this what you're saying?

update

I have originally deleted this question, but after just a few days the problem came back.

Anything we're going to do about that?

    It looks like proper edits , so what is the problem ? – Habib Nov 6 '13 at 13:48

    Many of the edits are good. There are a few there where the suggested edit has introduced code formatting where they shouldn't - those should have been rejected but have not been :( – Oded Nov 6 '13 at 13:50

    With those specific cases, a comment to the editor with a rollback would be my choice. – Oded Nov 6 '13 at 13:51

    @Habib massive indentation is a proper edit while theyre other things that could be fixed – user221081 Nov 6 '13 at 13:51
  • @mehow Which one are you referring to that was so bad? – Gray Nov 6 '13 at 13:52
  • Oh, you mean those should have been rejected as too minor? – Time Traveling Bobby Nov 6 '13 at 13:52

    Just looking at the accepted, there seems to have more edits that should have been rejected that weren't. I feel the reviewers of those need a break as much as the person doing those edits need a warning of some kind. – Jonathan Drapeau Nov 6 '13 at 13:58

    Nothing we can do. Nothing here is catastrophic. – Shadow9 Nov 6 '13 at 14:00
  • @JonathanDrapeau exactly my point! 16 out of 20 are too minor. That's alarming in both directions - the person who suggests the edits and the reviewers who accept it! – user221081 Nov 6 '13 at 14:01

    I need to ask this as a learning moment. I review suggested edits, and sure, some of these are minor... but most I would not consider too minor. With 1, they corrected a spelling mistake as well as added improved indentation. They put age and person in code blocks, which I don't necessarily agree with, but I don't see anything wrong with it. 2 I agree is a little too minor. Again, 3 looks good to me. Is 4 too minor? His changes improved readability IMO. I could go on, but maybe these are enough to help me learn the right way. 7 was approved by the OP. Surely, that means its ok? – Gray Nov 6 '13 at 14:05
  • @Gray see this – user221081 Nov 6 '13 at 14:07

    Four of the posts you linked to were already rejected, which is one of the two options we have for stopping such edits. (The other being improve upon it.) Several of the others are borderline, but nothing I'd reject outright. I probably would have improved/approved all of these and rejected none. – Bill the Lizard Nov 6 '13 at 14:08
  • The problem came back — what problem? Apparently you object to this user's edits, but I looked at a couple of the ones you linked directly and they seem fine to me. What do you think is wrong with those edits? – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Nov 11 '13 at 23:04
