I'm reviewing edits from a new user who is pretty active and doing a lot of constructive edits. However, he/she puts Ubuntu, brand names and versions into italics which looks weird and is not constructive. I'm improving the edits, however it seems to be an ongoing thing. What would be the best way to convince the user to refrain from those changes:
- Ping him/her in chat using
@[user id]which makes it look like I want to denounce him/her in a public space.
- Add a comment to one of his/her questions (and delete all of the conversation after it came to a conclusion) which possibly creates a larger set of comments where they don't belong.
- Reject edits and select "causes harm" to provide a message to the user which might not work at all because other users would still have to reject the edit and this approach is demotivating for the user (I once got blocked on superuser.com because I didn't do enough edits - as I found out after raising the question on meta - and stopped editing posts there for a long time.
I'm aware that it's not the most important thing in the world. I'm just interested which mechanisms the platform provides.
