I just saw this revision on a post, and all the revision was take a link to a search engine query. He even missed a typo I made. What's up?

  • Any guideline about this?

  • So you can see the revision. I'll use bold – userDepth Aug 15 '16 at 10:15

    People miss typos, once you get 2k, it is a lot less important to get every tiny thing because there is no review of the edit and multiple users will often work on a post overtime. In short, muru fixed what he noticed (obvious noise) and removed it, now you have fixed the typo, this is community editing in action :) – Mark Kirby Aug 15 '16 at 10:25

    This meta.askubuntu.com/questions/15154/… seems related. – Mark Kirby Aug 15 '16 at 10:36

For some reason, known only to yourself, you decided to add a random link to a search query for "Happy Llamas". Since that has absolutely nothing to do with your question, isn't adding anything remotely relevant to it and doesn't help people understand it, it is just noise and was correctly removed.

We try to keep questions streamlined and to the point. One of the guidelines for posting on Stack Exchange sites is "no chit-chat". It's even one of the first things mentioned in the tour:

This site is all about getting answers. It's not a discussion forum. There's no chit-chat.

So yes, please don't add such noise to your posts. Everything mentioned in a question or answer should be directly relevant to the issue at hand. Anything else should be removed. The edit was fine.

  • Ok TY, and what about revision quality ? This is his feedback, "deleted 94 characters in body; edited tags" Now I know is the chit chat part. – userDepth Aug 15 '16 at 10:24

    @userDepth yes, that's the default message added by the system when no reason was given by the editor. An explanation would have been better, true. I guess the editor assumed the reason was obvious since he removed something that was absolutely irrelevant to the question. – terdon Aug 15 '16 at 10:25
  • Yeah I think I'll leave that to my profile (maybe) – userDepth Aug 15 '16 at 10:33
  • If you like, sure. Just please stop adding it to your posts. – terdon Aug 15 '16 at 10:33
  • @userDepth I'm cool with discussing happy llamas in Ask Ubuntu Chat. – Revetahw says Reinstate Monica Aug 15 '16 at 18:05
  • @Fiksdal XD what? – userDepth Aug 15 '16 at 23:40
  • @userDepth You, know... Terdon said you had been posting about Llamas and stuff. – Revetahw says Reinstate Monica Aug 15 '16 at 23:42
  • @Fiksdal Yes, I'm curious about the chat proposal. I just can't chat now. – userDepth Aug 16 '16 at 0:23
  • @userDepth Don't worry, it was like a half-joke. I do like Llamas, though. – Revetahw says Reinstate Monica Aug 16 '16 at 0:32
  • @Fiksdal Well you can get why I didn't get the joke XD – userDepth Aug 16 '16 at 8:36
  • @userDepth Yeah. – Revetahw says Reinstate Monica Aug 16 '16 at 8:39
