“The challenge of rocket science is not getting into orbit; rather doing so while maintaining structural integrity. If your rocket explodes on the launch pad, some of the pieces might make it into orbit, but who cares about those tiny pieces?”
Tips for getting lots of edits:
- Enter the Triage/First Posts/Late Answers review queue if you have those. Otherwise, the newest questions page.
- Note down the following posts:
- Posts with links to images instead of images. These usually have the very noticeable link text "enter image description here".
- Posts with terrible spelling and/or grammar. Especially note down high-rep users who do this in audit tasks and check on them every once in a while; you may find that they have more posts with poor spelling/grammar.
- Posts with code not in code markdown.
- Posts with numbers followed by close-parentheses. These are typically indicative of lists; however, Stack Overflow's markdown parser does not recognize them as such.
- Make the proper edits to these posts (e.g. if the grammar sucks, fix it; if it has bare code, wrap it in `backticks` or put it in a code block) until you have five of them. This is the maximum number of suggested edits you can have at one time.
- As soon as an edit is approved (I usually tell by the +2 at the top of the page), submit the next one for review.
- Lather, rinse, repeat.
