What should we do if someone modifies a bunch of their questions in order to bump them onto the first page again?
I don't know if I am the implicit target of this question (and I really don't take it personally if I am), but I clearly have, from time to time, edited a bunch of my old questions/answers, which made them bump onto the first page again.
The reason I sometimes edit my old questions/answers is I am not a great writer. I usually leave typos and grammatical errors in my posts (sometimes embarrassing ones).
Every now and then, when I have time, I like to go over old posts of mine to correct as many typos as I can.
I believe there is a value-added for the site to me improving the wording, grammar and spelling of these old posts. But I've noticed that it bumps the posts back onto the first page, and I agree that this is disruptive of the site's question flow as it makes new questions disappear quicker from the first page.
Any suggestions on how to get the best of both worlds (i.e. the ability to improve past posts without swamping the first page) would be much welcome. I'd be happy to follow them.
One suggestion : is there a way to ask SE to only bump edited posts to the first page after substantial edits, say only when more than x-characters were changed?
(I have no problem either with refraining from these edits if the community deems them too disruptive and there is no way to prevent first page bumping.)
