I've just came from the
Suggested Edits review queue of StackOverflow because I found an user who was farming reputation with no-brainer editing. The reason why I referred it as "farming" and "no-brainer" it's because all his editing is just simply removing "Thanks in Advance" at the end of every old post he can find.
Personally, I don't think simply removing "Thanks in Advance" is an acceptable editing. While such kinds of post with "Thanks in Advance" are not encouraged in SO, it's still worth notice that most authors of these posts are newcomers and it's understandable that they just want to show their gratitude to this site. So I have rejected all his suggested edits under the reason
no improvement whatsoever.
When I checked his profile, I saw his daily rep gain by removing "Thanks in Advance". Apparently, still some of reviewers think that's an valid editing but daily +106 rep all by removing "Thanks in Advance" is hilarious.
(After I post this question, it's +196 now...)
I wonder if there's any way to stop this kind of no-brainer suggested edits? The present mechanism doesn't seem to work well on this case.
Thanks for Roombatron5000's comment about +1000 editing rep cap mechanism. From this case, I feel this 1000 rep could be easily farmed by Googling
Thanks in Advance and start no-brainer editing.
This action was also referred as "edit-hunting" in this MetaSO question: "Edit hunting and possible reputation farming - how should I react?"
