I have seen several questions which are asked by users who does not know English very well, (sometimes just bad, including myself). I want to propose an Edit flag, which users can raise to aware community to edit their posts when they feel, they should be edited.

I want to hear from the community about this feature.

Though the original question was quickly edited, here is an example

    Hmmmm... interesting, but the volume of edits on indecipherable posts suggests that people are irked by bad English to the point of fixing it themselves (that's what I do). Jun 23, 2012 at 19:45

This has been proposed a few times in the past, and we've certain features on the way that will hopefully work toward this end as well...

But really, if you see something wrong, the best way to make sure it gets fixed is to dive in and fix it yourself. Anyone can suggest an edit, and once you have 2K reputation points your edits will be visible without pre-approval. If you can't fix it yourself, assuming that someone else can is a pretty bad assumption - maybe someone can, but who says they want to?
