I came across a rather interesting revision history of an question, in which was a horrible suggested edit that was accepted by the Community bot.

To be fair, the suggested edit wasn't all bad – the tags it added were fine, but the content edits were mainly changing Macbook to Mac Book and contracting two sentences. In my opinion a rather unnecessary edit, and quite a bad one.

I'm not that informed about how Community reviews suggested edits, but it seems to be doing all right, although this one really wasn't that good. I suggest we tweak it's algorithms to reject edits splitting certain words and product names or even simply rejecting edits with only two characters edited in the main content. Or simply not allowing community to accept suggested edits at all – there seems to be enough active high-rep users on Ask Different to handle all suggested edits by themselves.

That looks like something from before the redesign of /review. (Or an artifact for when a user's account is deleted). Either way, I've not seen any recent reviews by the community user.

Unless you can point to something more recent, I'm inclined to close this as status-completed at this point. It's fascinating, but likely to be a relic from the past.

  • Hm, you're probably right. I guess I'm a year late, huh? Thanks :)
