A lot of times I've seen a post and wanted to edit it, but I wasn't sure if it changed the original intent of the post, or would be helpful, so I held off, knowing that my edits would be binding unless someone edited them out or rolled back the changes.
In these situations, it would be great to be able to suggest an edit, to see if the rest of the community agrees with the edit. Instead of them having to undo a bad edit of mine, it would be better to have the edit rejected before it ever gets seen by other users. There are a few things that could be used in replacement for a >2k rep user suggesting edits, such as
- Editing it anyway, but writing in the edit summary "I'm not sure if this changes the meaning of the post"
- Asking about the potential edit in a comment
- Going on chat and asking about it there
- Open a new browser and suggest an edit anonymously
However, all of these seem like workarounds. I think it'd be nice to at least have the edit approved by one other person if you're unsure about it. Perhaps a button on the edit window saying "Do you want this edit to go into the queue"?
