for people wondering what the best practices are when editing posts
contains almost all kinds of reasons when an edit is encouraged, but it doesn’t mention if users should edit a post – question or answer – when it’s poorly typographically styled and formatted.
Since the graphicdesign.SE (or short GD.SE) is Q&A site for
for professional graphic designers and non-designers trying to do their own graphic design
it would make a good (public) image when most of the posts on this SE site are well styled and formatted.
On the other hand there are many questions and answers to edit and it’s the question if this is really necessary, since correct typography is not very common on the internet – at least in chat forum like sites when things should go fast and don’t need to be (typographically) correct … :)
We would also need a so called "Manual of Style" for questions and answers to achieve that the correct style and formatting is consistent at least within a post an perhaps throughout GD.SE.
What’s your opinion?
