This question already has an answer here:
I asked a question with bad grammar and poor quality because I have poor English skills. Another experienced user edited my question. I really appreciated his editing and am very grateful to him.
But one day later, my question is not on the "Active" list. I would like my question to still appear active, so I edited it. The question lost the previous question editor. My question status has changed to active and shows it was edited by me just a few seconds ago.
I don't want this because I assume the previous question editor has lost some reputation. How can I make my question active without losing the previous question editor? I know I could add a bounty, but I don't want to do that.
