I'd like to start this by explaining why I rejected that edit. I rejected (and edited) that suggestion1 after I have approved (and edited) 3 suggested edits by you consecutively: 1, 2, 3: 1st suggested edit: image resizing is mostly welcomed (due to the current notorious buggy Imgur's image scaling), though the title shortening and the addition of Android ...

Yes. It's rejected by the system to avoid conflict, which doesn't imply that your edit was bad in any way. So if you feel your suggestion is good, you're always encouraged to suggest it again. People with the "review suggested edits" privilege (at 2,000 reputation) will be happy to review and approve it.

I say, you move beyond the edit and evaluate the worth of the post. If the original post (subjected to translation, when required) holds value to the question (more than just a comment, but may not be a full-fledged answer) and the edit doesn't change the intent of the post, than accept or improve the edit. If the post isn't worth to be an answer at first ...

Edits to posts are completely unnecessary. As you suspect, the site updated those links automatically when the switchover occurred. The edits you've been seeing lately are to tag wikis. The request was already made on the global meta to automatically update these to HTTPS, so this will probably happen at some point. As people have already been warned on ...

How does the edits that would have been rejected when made by a new user or user with a low reputation be accepted when moderators and high reputation users? Users with 2000 or above reputation points (henceforth as privileged editor) are granted a privilege where their edits take place immediately. The system trusts a user with such reputation, and thus, ...

If the changes to be made are so minor that you can't find anything else to change, then just move on. In my experience, there is rarely a post that needs edits where there is not more than six characters to fix. Even so, there are plenty of other posts that are in serious need of editing. Once you get to 2000 reputation you won't have to worry about it.

If it's clear from context that the user suggesting the edit is the same person as the user who posted the post, then yes, please do approve the edit. Typical clues include: The poster is an unregistered user (identified by a browser cookie rather than a long-term credential), who is rather new to Stack Exchange (typically, that's their first question). The ...

You, as a user, are absolutely right to reject such edits. As a mod I am able to see the account's e-mail address, IP, etc. Putting all factors together, I was certain the two users were one and the same. I wouldn't have approved the edit otherwise. The account merge process is relatively slow (TBH I resent the fact that they took the ability to do it ...

This was my fault — I got you confused with someone else. I need to be more careful when moderating from mobile. I've removed the ban. Sorry about that :(

I was the user doing the job. As I heard from this meta post, I stopped the activity on the spot. As a precaution, I stopped it also on other sites, where it didn't cause any negative feedbacks, and the edit suggestions were quickly accepted. A more recent comment in the related MSE post, from an SE insider, indicates that an automatized solution from the ...

The thing with "too minor" edits is a good point. AFAIK the background of this restriction is to prevent <2000 rep users from gaming the system by making a lot of small and easy edits that don't completely fix a post. Edits should fix all issues of a post. Not just the minor ones. But if there were only minor ones that needed to be fixed and got fixed ...

It seems minor, but not too minor, in my opinion. If a post has a spelling error, that is too minor. But if there are a lot of spelling errors, editing to fix them makes the question much more readable. People are bound to make spelling errors, but they are accidental. However, using greetings or saying "thank you" is deliberate (though generally second ...

All entries in that post should link to questions on our site now. If you see any that don't, please remove them :) Feel free to post a question asking how to root your S4, assuming there is not such a question already. When that question is answered, either by yourself after you figure out the process or by someone else, then it should be added to the ...

We don't have review audits on this site. While the second one does look like the random garbage of an autogenerated edit for an audit, it's a real edit someone suggested. We do occasionally get rubbish edits like this, and more often spam edits like the first one you linked. Like flagging posts as spam, rejecting edits as "spam or vandalism" feeds the ...

I disagree with the answers regarding both types of water. Both ionized or de-ionized water will essentially destroy your devices very quickly, as in "becoming inoperative". Batteries are damaged very quickly by any water that can get to the electroyte. LCD screen are particularly sensitive to water leaking in at the edges; they may be usable, but would ...

OP changed his answer a bit based on the citations I provided. I still strongly disagree with any mention of rice as it is pure pseudoscience, but the answer itself is no longer harmful to devices. Therefore, my problems with this answer are gone. I've given it an upvote. I'd like to mention that this is only possible because OP still uses stackexchange. ...

First to read: What is the etiquette for modifying posts? and Why can people edit my posts? How does editing work? The first link is an FAQ from Meta Stack Exchange (aka the main meta), and the second link is an article in the Help Center. It is clearly stated that Edits are expected to be substantial and to leave the post better than you found it. ...

Minor edits should come with added value, like rephrasing the sentences or titles so that they are clearer or easier to understand, adding formatting, or editing the tags where applicable. Minor wrong spellings are where we need to think twice on editing. Sometimes, they are forgivable, sometimes not. But removing "thanks" and "regards" alone is TOO minor. ...
