How/why would one of my own questions be edited by someone else?

Asked by Austinlad (16298points) August 14th, 2010

I just tried to look at the latest responses to one of my questions and get the message it’s being edited. If not by me, who???

It has gone to moderation. You will probably be getting a message from the mods.

Correction… it’s one of my answers that’s being edited that has already been responded to by many people. Do mods do that?

Oh, now I understand. The original question, which wasn’t mind, is being edited, not my answer. Got it.

Just for the record, all of the moderators and staff have the ability to push a question back to the user, for them to edit.
Only the staff and the original asker are able to actually go in and edit the question.

Oh, good. I was worried for a minute there!

You don’t think there’s a maniacal editor on the loose, running around and wreaking havoc?

Stealth Mod Gremlins who want to control everyone, even if it is only in a virtual world.

We prefer the term Stealth Mod Ninjas, thank you very much. :p
