This question recently was edited and approved: How to protect a space elevator against terrorism
The edit provided an embedded picture and link to a relevant xkcd comic. The comic was already linked in a comment. While it is related topically, and might add a little humor to the original question, I fail to see how this edit improves the question in a meaningful way. In addition, the comic contains a certain four-letter word that would otherwise probably be edited away.
What are some rules or guidelines to consider when editing/reviewing edits for other members' posts? While these could be subjective, my first thought is that an edit should:
- Not violate the original intent of the question
- Provide meaningful improvements to the overall quality of the post.
Any thoughts about this question in particular? About general editing guidelines?
