I've requested several edits that I thought were decently positive improvements, and more than half of them were rejected. So now I'm getting a warning that I could have an edit ban placed if I had too many more edits rejected.
I have a feeling my edits are being rejected because of one of the reasons listed below:
- It was suggested during one of my 'edit frenzies'
I'll suggest several edits in a short period of time; most of them being just a few characters added and/or removed from the title and/or body.
- It wasn't very helpful, or it harmed the post
I'll suggest an edit thinking it was an improvement, but others (and me, after reading the edited post ;-;) see it as a negative change to the post, or it stayed exactly the same, just said in a different way.
- It was only posted for the reputation
I don't do that anymore, but when I first joined stackexchange, I thought of your reputation count as the most important variable you have. (until I learned what the word meant XD) So I used to do anything I could to raise it, (although that was how I got a question ban placed on my earth science account) and editing was one of them.
- The post I edited was just insufferable through an edit; my post just made it worse
I would edit a post, and then later realize the post was beyond editable, and my edit just made it even worse than it already was.
To prevent myself from backing myself into an edit ban, I've stopped suggesting edits for awhile.
But I'm worried that when I suggest an edit again later, It will be rejected and I'd be banned fro editing.
So what I'm wondering is:
How can I suggest a necessary edit that will actually benefit the post?
