So, is it ok to approve edits that are adding on to original content like following edit ;


The added info seems legit and the user couldn't have posted the answer due to low rep. But it seems the same could have achieved using a comment but it may not gain the same visibility as in the answer itself.

The answer to your question cannot be yes or no. It depends on what the edit is made.
But for your specific case, personally, I would not approve such an edit. The edit should actually be a comment.

  • Yeah, I thought so too.. I am also not clear what to do after rejecting the edit, should I comment the edit after rejecting the edit or ask user to do it? For the second case the user may not comment and maybe a valuable info will be lost for the question .. Nov 14, 2019 at 11:44
  • just reject it and you shuold be fine.
