I don't know I am wrong or right I just need to share my thoughts. Today I found that one user have continuously made an edit in questions and edits are also approved. Edits are very minor just for earning reputations, there is no meaning of such edits. Below is some links that you may check

Magento 2 - Free Shipping / Drop Off (shipping) charge based on specific zip codes

Magmi not saving checked options on mac

What is a good method to handle suspected fraudulent transactions with Authorize.net?

What is 'best practice' when setting anchor on multi-level categories?

Conflicts in where clause with ambiguous column names

Change the template inheritance hierarchy

Multiple local.xml layout files in a package

Onepage checkout, or not Onepage checkout

some of them are 5 year old question, and in most of this edits there is no meaning or usefulness. should we really allow such things in the community ?

Should we really allow such edits ?

Please correct me here.

Thanks.

I'd even consider these edits harmful. They are using quotes to highlight random paragraphs which are not remotely quotes.

What to do in such a case? Flag one of the answers/questions for moderator attention and mention that this particular user is vandalizing in their edits. You don't need to include a whole list of edits, the moderators can see the edit history for any user.

I rolled back the edits. Please be more careful when reviewing, if you read this:

  • Any words about this? magento.stackexchange.com/review/low-quality-posts/121464 ... The issue was missing media folder. Isnt it a possible answer? @Marius – sv3n Mar 12 '18 at 12:49
  • @sv3n I didn't delete that. Also don't mix issues. – Marius Mar 12 '18 at 13:12
  • Just mentioned you, to check this ;) Didnt want to open a new question and thought it fits to this. – sv3n Mar 12 '18 at 13:19

    It's usually missing write permission, but a missing directory may cause it as well, so the answer is valid. They don't explain why, but probably just don't know. Still it can be helpful, although it is not a very good answer. Let the votes decide I'd say, nothing to delete. – Fabian Schmengler Mar 13 '18 at 5:56

    Thanks @FabianSchmengler for advise.I have undo the delete – Amit Bera Mar 13 '18 at 8:54
  • @AmitBera as said above, the 2nd sentence is answer to me. Not a good on, but it's an answer. :) – sv3n Mar 13 '18 at 9:28
  • @FabianSchmengler Thanks for your advice i will be more careful next time. – Qaisar Satti Mar 14 '18 at 7:54
  • @FabianSchmengler Thanks for the advice. Take care next time. – Prince Patel Mar 14 '18 at 11:34

    This is becoming a serious issue in my assessment. You'll find users such as Teja bhagavan Kollepara continually spamming edits on out of date answers/questions causing them to resurface. Users engaging in these activities should just have their accounts deleted. – Eirik Mar 17 '18 at 12:12
  • Thanks for comments. Next time I will look carefully the edit and low-quality post. – Rama Chandran M Mar 19 '18 at 7:17

    @Eirik Teja isnt a good example (imho), I know he does a lot of minor edits (e.g. replace "magneto" with "magento") ... I agree with this and it takes no time to review, since he already was above 2k REP and can edit w/o reviews. Sometimes it's bit anoying to have some old quesetions bumped, but it doest hurt. – sv3n Mar 21 '18 at 21:35
  • @sv3n can't we do something to avoid such ting? – Dhaval Solanki Mar 22 '18 at 5:45
