Recently some of the Area51 sites have gotten CHAOS.
...they will spend a couple of days sweeping up a little bit just to get the place in order. This is the world's most superficial cleanup: they're just looking at the top 1000 questions in order by page views and, if necessary, editing the titles to make them more grammatical, fix spelling, and make them reflect the gist of the question better.
I think this is a great idea by the StackExchange team! While CHAOS is more than just editing and fixing posts - I feel we can go a little further with this idea on our site I think the community as whole here could really benefit from cleaning up a lot of our older posts that may have slipped below the high standards of questions and answers we've come to expect.
I've created a few queries using the StackExchange Data explorer, I'd like to get users of the community the information they need to help our most viewed questions and turn them into stellar examples of Q&A.
- Top 1000 Questions sorted by Views
- Possible Duplicates: Posts with "Duplicate" in the comments
- Questions with high view counts that have no images
I think it'd be great if we could go through a few a day, making edits only when necessary and when it help to improve the content of the question/answer. What are your thoughts?
