That's a very interesting question! I already had this kind of 'what the heck is this' feeling. Original: I've been asked to complete a SWOT analysis covering my small R&D group with reference to an enterprise wide project combining R&D groups from across the organisation. What I'd do, in case I didn't know what these acronym's mean: Search ...

The link you provided is great! The first phrase to come to my mind to answer this: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. So, instead of doing a massive amount of edits that adds low / no value and having them stockpiling on the edition queue, you could add comments on these questions to ...

Is there a way to viewing the newer questions You have the option to sort questions page by newest posts. http://pm.stackexchange.com/questions?sort=newest I've noticed a lot of edits coming through recently Probably due to the hats of Winter Bash 2015.

Editing is something that is encouraged on the StackExchange platform to improve both questions and answers. Here are some of the things you can do to help: Turn questions that might be closed Not Constructive into Constructive questions by removing a few small key phrases: "What do you think about X"? "What is your opinion about Y?" "Is there a better ...

Think About Semantic Clarity of the Question Context matters, and clarity is often the determining factor for me when I review titles. For example: ruby: chars in var name This is a terrible title for many reasons, and the tag being in the title is only one of them. Contrast this with the question below. What characters are allowed when defining a ...

TL;DR By all means, invest time in improving questions and answers on the site whenever you come across a post that needs improvement. However, actively seeking out edits that are primarily "missions of grammar" or otherwise trivial edits can waste other people's time, and may color their perception of the editor's activities on the site. You don't want ...

Things that would facilitate more editing: Editing Standards/guidelines If we collectively define quality, then I'm more likely to edit towards quality. Editing conventions are, in my opinion, the most important thing we can do to encourage editing. (Probably the second most important thing is to be civil to those who fall short of the editing conventions.)...

When facts are not available decisions are hard. Decisions become based on opinion, or who has more experience and time in the community. As the moderator Tiago Cardoso says Rules, as any tool, are a means to a purpose. In the case of community rules, the purpose is to make posts as useful as possible. Happens that if someone start bulk editing ...

I'd say the same approach for tag edition applies - edit is encouraged when it really adds value (i.e. no trivial edit) OR you can do it without keeping stuff queued up for review (i.e. edit priviledge). The case of "grammatical or spelling mistakes" are focused (IMHO) on posts written by non-native English speakers with several errors. Otherwise, an ...

I appreciate your efforts to edit this, but I'm not sure this question can be saved. First, I'm not sure this would be on topic since it doesn't seem to be about project management. Second, the question is really, really vague. The asker doesn't give enough detail to give a solid answer. The other signal that tells me something is wrong is the fact that ...

There are some people at PMSE who answer a lot of questions. Since their answers seem to be at least relevant it is a safe assumption that they have read the questions and spotted most visible issues (common mistakes, typos) as well as things that require clarification. Why not just fix the question and treat is a part of answering it? This is something I ...
