The issue of editing en masse has been discussed a few times on meta, most recently on @MarkTrapp's answer on the question on Amazon Links and I think it's clear that no one likes a messy homepage. I've tried to limit myself to 3-4 substantial edits per day on older posts.
But how about new questions, let's say questions that are on the first page of the newest tab at any given time (and answers to those questions)? Are micro edits like:
- removing "thanks",
- capitalizing Is,
- removing spaces before punctuation marks,
- putting quotes in blockquotes, etc
a bad practice? I've been doing a lot of those recently, strictly on new questions, thinking that they are on the homepage already, and getting bumped at the top of it doesn't really matter. Is there any side effect I should be aware of?
Update: An example of my micro-edits, where I edited 2 minutes after the question was posted.
