For this specific cleanup of the google removal (thanks, by the way! Every little bit helps!), you may want to create an edit explanation that you use each time that gives the reviewer the ability to figure out what you're doing if interested, for instance:
Fixed tags (removed [google] as discussed in meta: meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/210920/cleaning-up-google-tags)
In addition, as I said in that post in regards to action items:
Naturally, if there are quality or other issues that can be fixed at the same time, please do that too
Here are some things to look out for:
- If the question is very low quality, flag as 'very low quality'
- Remove any 'thanks' or 'please help'
- Fix any obvious spelling or grammar errors
- Add any code blocks if necessary
- Fix the title if it is unclear or doesn't explain what is in the question
As explained by JoshC, the minor edit system is in place because every time you suggest an edit, someone else has to review it. If you didn't make a good edit comment, or you didn't fix other obvious mistakes, people are more likely to reject it undoing the work you put in. While it is more work while you are under 2k rep, the extra effort is worth it.
I don't want to discourage anyone from improving the site through suggested edits, just be aware that you are held to a higher standard when you do it. Thanks again for the help!
