On several occasions I have found that in the Suggested Edits review queue there are new (low-reputation) users who almost always suggest insignificant or irrelevant changes to questions or answers. Who are these users?

  • Are you talking specifically about the Suggested Edits review queue? – Werner Feb 28 '20 at 22:11
  • @Werner Yes, I have right. If my question it is not more clear in English language you are free to edit it. Thank you very much. – Sebastiano Feb 28 '20 at 22:13

The Suggested Edits review queue contains edits that are suggested by members that have not reached 2,000 reputation. This limit is when the Edit questions and answers privilege kick in. Until that point, users could gain reputation (+2) from suggesting an edit that is eventually approved. This reputation gain (up to +1,000 reputation per user) could encourage new users trying to improve the site, but might be frivolous (hence being put up for review).

  • Thank you very much..always...Why they improved questions or answers with very modest or incorrect or unnecessary adjustments? – Sebastiano Feb 28 '20 at 22:38

    @Sebastiano: It's subjective. Some people feel they are improving the site (or the post) by changing some grammar. I was like as well when I started, thinking that any improvement is still an improvement. They don't know that things should be a more substantive (including tags, possibly the title, some formatting and grammar, say). – Werner Feb 28 '20 at 22:43
