I am seeing a great deal of suggested edits that extend non-CW answers in a significant way. I believe they are good faith attempts to "improve" an answer by filling in details, but the resulting answer may depart significantly from the original answerer's intent (especially if the question appears to be homework and the answerer intentionally left some details to the reader). In any case, the sudden switch in narrative voice is usually apparent, and the original author surely would not appreciate such an alteration of his/her answer.
My question is two-fold:
- Should such edits generally be rejected? My guess is that they should, but I would like to hear others' opinions.
- If so, could some kind of brief guideline be provided on the edit screen regarding acceptable edits? I think this will reduce the number of such radical suggested edits. As I said, it is primarily coming from new users that (I think) simply misunderstand the modus operandi of the site.
