It has been noticed that when editing my own posts, that I sometimes get annoyed with a small wrong detail in a post that I then do a 5 character or less edit. Here is proof of this causing trouble for users:
This was the moderator message to me about a post I edited. One solution is to prohibit any edits with 6 characters or less just as in the review queue. The post in the message is the top rated question on my main Math Stack Exchange profile page if you would like to see the edits there concerning tetration.
This is the same feature in the comments with one not being able to edit every 5 seconds and not after 5 minutes as to prevent spam of editing and editing after way past comment creation to unfairly update comments.
In short, for those unwanting to read the question, or large piece of text in this case, would be that, in summary, I find myself editing very little nuances and accidentally generating unwanted noise on the site.
One way to fix this form of “question exposure abuse” would be to not let users edit a post every few seconds or minutes, maybe every 5 to 120 seconds. The edits themselves I am proposing to mandatorily contain at least a few characters, maybe at least 4 to 10 characters, changes with line breaks, photos, and other “non-text” related edits counting as a character in edits.
This will not only stop any unneeded messages, such as mine, to be sent by the moderators, but also improve the relevance of questions and “slow down” the unwanted noise on this popular community. As always please give me feedback and correct me please!
