This question already has an answer here:

This particular user seems to be on a tag wiki editing spree. I've noticed quite a few tag edits which are very trivial and offer very less information. And I happened to see quite a lot of the tag wiki edits in the reviews queue even today.

My question is, how do I flag such an user for moderator attention? Because there is no flag option in the review page of a tag wiki edit, nor does the tag page have an option to flag.

  • Those edits are all excerpts; so I'd expect those to be short. – Martijn Pieters Nov 18 '13 at 8:22
  • @MartijnPieters The user has done only wiki edits until now. I imagine that it might not be possible to find a post by the user. – devnull Nov 18 '13 at 8:28
  • But you can flag any post @devnull, just make sure that you explain exactly what you want. – ben is uǝq backwards Nov 18 '13 at 8:29
  • @devnull: There are posts; I checked first. :-) – Martijn Pieters Nov 18 '13 at 8:30

The user is creating Wiki Excerpts, the short, plain-text descriptions of tags that appear in the tag tooltip and at the top of tag pages.

The edits all look entirely appropriate and useful to me, I see no reason to stop this user. This is good and useful work!

  • These reviews are done by loads of users. At some point you are going to have to trust the review system here. – Martijn Pieters Nov 18 '13 at 8:28

    If you take that attitude @R.J then what's the point in anyone doing anything? You have to trust people at some point and then come up with a way of cleaning up the mess if it becomes necessary. – ben is uǝq backwards Nov 18 '13 at 8:29
