I recently made an edit to this question. But it was rolled back a few seconds later. I tried to improve the grammar, rephrased some of the sentences and updated the formatting to make the code more readable. But when I asked in the comments about the rollback, this was the reply made by the OP:
I rolled back because of too few changes (and grammar.. well, it's vague). No sense in this. Because: 1. You've broken my traditional question style. 2. You've put your code style while I prefer to leave mine. Correcting format may be "many letters", but "little sense"
I personally don't think it was a valid reason to rollback. I don't see why anyone should have a "traditional style". In my opinion, a question should just be a question — without any specific styles. And once it's been posted on Stack Overflow, it belongs to the community and is subject to further improvements.
At least, that's the impression I get from reading this Help Center page:
Some common reasons to edit are:
- to fix grammatical or spelling mistakes
- to clarify the meaning of a post without changing it
- to correct minor mistakes or add addendums / updates as the post ages
- to add related resources or hyperlinks
Try to make the post substantively better when you edit, not just change a single character. Tiny, trivial edits are discouraged.
I think this edit qualifies the first two reasons above. I'm asking this just to be sure; was my edit out of line? If not, what's the appropriate course of action now?
Just to be clear: I have no personal grudges with the asker, whatsoever. This is meant to be a constructive discussion, and I hope it doesn't offend anyone. Also, please try to make your answers address the issue in general, not specific to this particular case.
