This is the place for editors to expand upon their votes about jokes in the queue with corrections or marked as a duplicate. Editors may discuss why they believe corrections should be approved or rejected, and also if a joke is truly a duplicate.

After looking through some of the 450 corrections, someone has to be screwing around. Most of these editors are so minor it seems like a blatant attempt at easy points.

I know its really not my place to say, but if you're going to correct a joke, do it RIGHT. I've seen jokes where the editors take out a single period, but leave the blatant misspellings and grammatical errors. Then there are ones that only correct the category, but dont even bother to proofread the joke. Then there are the ones with no corrections at all. These are probably the worst because when someone wants to legitimately correct the joke, they cant because its already in the queue for no reason.

So I just want to propose we make a hard set of rules to use when reviewing corrections.

Such as corrections with a single spelling/grammar error not be accepted, or where an extra space is added, etc. Even if it makes it slightly better, it might discourage this later on. I'm voting no on most of these in hopes someone can actually correct it properly and deserve the points they get.

Please abide by the above suggestion.

I think some people (Animal) have purposely posted things in the wrong category so they can change them and get extra points. There are a lot of those annoying pun type things posted in Animal Category that I just verified 70 some of. I think other people are correcting them, too; however, it would be nice if someone reminded him to get his categories right.

He doesn't get points by correcting his own jokes, but he might be doing it to get points on a separate account. We seem to have accumulated many trolls lately.

I just became an editor, and I saw that there were over 200 corrections that needed to be verified
