Currently, a user does not get any notification when a trivial edit (less than 6 characters, by a user who has the edit privilege) is made on one of his/her posts. As in this example.

Even though the user is trust-worthy (owing to the rep of the user), wouldn't it be nice for the OP to get a notification whenever an edit is made, even trivial?

  • The owner of the post does get notified for edits to their post. – animuson Nov 26 '15 at 9:20
  • @animuson only non trivial edits. Sometimes, even 1 character is important. – Shadow Nov 26 '15 at 9:21
  • @animuson No, not when a user with the edit privilege (and/or the mod) does the edit. – Dawny33 Nov 26 '15 at 9:21
  • @Dawny33 Who performed the edit is not at all relevant when determining whether to notify. Was it perhaps trivial as Shadow Wizard states? Very few characters changed? – animuson Nov 26 '15 at 9:22
  • @animuson guess he means the edit here. It changed only two characters, hence no notification was sent. (threshold is 6 characters, or changing code) – Shadow Nov 26 '15 at 9:23
  • @animuson Yes, this for example – Dawny33 Nov 26 '15 at 9:23
  • So you mean only trivial edits, since you do get notified about "big" edits, as you were just notified about the edit I've made here now. :) – Shadow Nov 26 '15 at 9:27
  • @ShadowWizard Yeah. Received the notification :) And yeah, even trivial edits need to be notified IMO. Sometimes a short edit might damage /change significant content. – Dawny33 Nov 26 '15 at 9:29
  • Agreed, already upvoted after editing. – Shadow Nov 26 '15 at 9:37

    Answer to this question seems to be related: No notification was received for an edit to a post. – Martin Jan 26 '16 at 6:14

    I agree minor update are also relevant and should receive notification. In my case a person remove one tag I consider relevant twice and I only realize when revisit my question. – Juan Carlos Oropeza Nov 21 '16 at 23:19
