For last few days I have seen few users editing posts in a serial way. I'll be straightforward here, These edits are surely an attempt to gain reputation.
I can say so based on
- A custom, fixed edit summary like "improved question"
- edits are of similar fashion.(eg changing cases of words everywhere)
- edits are done in very short span(eg. 10 edits in 15 minutes)
Such edits are mostly rejected(90% rejected, 10% approved are mostly wrong as well)
I won't name anybody, So I am not linking any edit. But anyone who reviews them must have seen them. I think such edits are waste of everybody's time, so such users must be refrained from doing so.
What are your views on this? How to stop them in short term and long term?
Should we apply a approved/rejected ratio that every user should have to be able to edit posts?(for eg. after 25 edits, a user should maintain 50% approved edits ratio to be able to edit posts further.)
