I just wanted to let you all know that I'm a StackExchange employee and I'm working on improving the English Language site. Basically, that means I'll be correcting things like grammar, spelling, punctuation, and trying to make titles clearer (and represent the actual question better). Of course, we are a collaboratively edited site, so if you liked something better before I changed it, go ahead and change it back.
I'm sorry for the confusion about what I'm doing here. Check out this post for more info: https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/100137/what-is-the-meaning-of-chaos-is-it-related-to-the-psi-character
Could you give us some clarifications on what kind of criteria you're using to identify the posts you're going to alter? Namely, what are the things you look for in determining what you'll change, and what kind of approach do you plan to take while making those changes?
I'm not entirely clear about the wording of this 'question'. If you are changing, for example, titles to make them 'safe for radio' then I'm happy with that (in the specialized sense of "I think it's a really bad idea but I'm not paying for this site and I'd rather put up with it than go somewhere else"). But if you start correcting grammar and usage on a site devoted to grammar and usage then you had better be very certain you know more about every topic than the poster, and even so you are destroying the point of a community-moderated site.
(In case it's not obvious, this is not a personal attack: I'm querying the idea of a 'sub-editor' on this particular site, and hoping it's just infelicitous wording).
Just FYI, due to a recent spate of events, EL&U has a "titles must be censored" policy, which is why this revision, helpful though it is, should not have gone through. I haven't edited it back because I don't want to bump it, so I would appreciate it if you would change it back with your special no-bump powers.
Really, have The Powers That Be decided we are such an obstreperous lot here, with such faulty moderation and so high a proportion of posts not sufficiently edited for the old lady in Dubuque that we have become a constant source of embarrassment to said Powers, and now need someone to monitor us within an inch of our lives lest we be caught eating paste or running with scissors or making fun of the Junior League or any one of a number of other godawful unmentionable things?
I never noticed you before and considering this post is recent, that explains why. I think it was a nice decision to post this question so as to avoid incomprehensions.
But you made it sound like it's your only task... Is it or am I wrong? I mean, it sounds weird to know of a specific-purpose moderator... Just saying, though. Wish you good work! (Now I'm not sure whether this expression exists or whether it's the best one or not...)
