Please state the resaon for edit G2G posts

+10 votes
I've noticed that there are a few people who can, and frequently do edit questions and tags posted here on G2G.

When that happens, you should at least state the reason for the edit, and/or what was edited.

Other times, I see posts that should be edited (with proper tags), but don't. How do we bring these to the attention of those with the power?

Leaders are charged with the responsibility of moderating G2G. Editing is part of this process. Here is what is written regarding editing:

Editing Questions

Keep in mind that G2G is not wiki, in the sense that editing and improving upon other people's work is not generally encouraged, carefully tracked, etc.

When you edit a question, a line will appear that says you edited it, but it will not say what you changed or why. Therefore, you should avoid making meaningful changes to what someone else wrote.

Please fix obvious typos and errors in the question itself, if it's safe to assume the person would want them changed. However, don't change the body of the question except in the cases below.

The Integrators Project is the place to bring attention to posts in need of editing.

How might one go about bringing posts to the attention of the Integrators Project?

Is there a list of our current leaders? Seems like there are a few more than are listed here:
Just go to any Leader's profile and click on their Leader badge to see the list of badgeholders.
ooh... that's very helpful. I hadn't thought of that. Thanks.
This link will take you to the leaders of the Integrators Project:
