Should edits to off-topic or low quality questions (such as this) be approved if they do nothing to improve the topicality or quality of the question itself?


1 Answer 1


No. Especially if it's an older question that has fallen off the homepage - all you'll be doing is bumping up a question that doesn't belong or is already closed. If the edit doesn't fix the actual problems with the post, there's no reason to approve it.

  • I do tend to approve edits to recent, not-yet-closed questions if they improve legibility – so close voters can more easily see that the post isn't just low quality but actually off topic.
