In the last few months I encountered many edits in the review queue where low quality/insignificant/too localized posts (e.g. this) were edited by low-rep users. Quite frequently these posts are likely to be closed, but reviewers don't take that into account and approve of minor edits, bumping up thus the low quality post in the main page.
Since this is a community-driven site where editing is ecouraged, thus I ask wehether we have any policy on when to accept/reject minor edits of low quality posts appearing in the review queue. Should we stay permissive or should we be more strict on this? Relevant points:
- edited and approved questions bump up in the list (this is mostly unwanted, see here);
- low quality posts should either be closed (and not edited) or edited to increase their quality (simple formatting is not enough);
- I understand that some low-rep users think of editing as a source of reputation (one user come to my mind, but I don't want to point around);
- many times my "elaborate" answer why I'm rejecting a minor/useless edit is wasted as in the meantime others being more quick have already approved of it (this is of course subjective, but I feel like I am trying to do a bit of explaining while others simply hit on Approve). This pushes me to the direction to skip these reviews, which goes against my intention;
I'm not asking about minor edits (we have some rules on that) but about approving such minor edits.
