I'm not one to frequently ask or answer on worldbuilding, but I do lurk very often. I'm well familiar with the layout of Stack Exchange sites, and am mainly active on Super User.
When I saw this question in which the original asker reverted any and all edits (which were approved in the case of the user with less than 2k rep), I figured it would be best to discuss the matter here.
He edited this in:
edit: If you feel the urge to fix my post's tone please resist your edits dumb it down and add nothing. Please stop making edits. I will revert them.
Which I know for a fact is something that shouldn't be in a question. I've myself removed more "Edit: Thanks for the answers!!" and "Edit: Nevermind guys!!" out of questions than I can remember.
Stack Exchange sites are not forums
Out of the interest of not creating more conflict, I didn't edit his question.
Concerning the edits @Jim2B made, I didn't see anything wrong with them. When an edit changes the intent of a question, they are malicious. I don't believe his edits changed the intent of the question.
It can be argued edits that improve grammar / spelling / change sentences around a bit "change the original author's tone" but I see questions with very poor English all the time that have been edited, and go on to be stellar questions (point being the tone was changed due to the way the question was worded, but the question intent was exactly the same).
What to do:
- Was the original edit fine?
- Should the question be reverted to that edit?
- Either way, should we removed the "do not edit my question" part of the question?
