This started as a discussion on chat and it grew into a larger discussion than I anticipated. I'm going to move it over here as suggested by Gung. Here are some links to allow others to follow the original discussion:
Initially I was asking just about whether I should remove "Please help" type endings from questions, like I did here: https://stats.stackexchange.com/posts/174696/revisions
However, the conversation mostly focused on what makes an edit "too small" and/or "trivial."
- Should pleas for help be removed from questions as part of a larger edit?
- What are the guidelines for a "trivial" edit?
