Question in regards to 'grammar and correctness'.  If someone other the OP edits your question, is the eligibility of the Question for the competition effected?

I believe correcting grammar mistakes should be permitted, however, with the limited option- range. As an example, if someone is not using any interpunctions and almost 25% of the question is misspelled in original content - this should be disqualified. I saw several questions and answers not containing single dot or capital letter. Considering that we have so many tools available to translate like: google translator etc etc bad English should not be so much problem. In case the question is unclear comments are available to ask further. Once you have more clear vision- I am sure your help will be appreciated. Nevertheless, If someone’s text is not 75% and above original should be not taken under consideration- it only means that person did not care and put effort into quality of the content. Moderators are here to guide and help- and this is great- but they are not your Personal assistant to clean all your mistakes and do your work.

Hello,

as long as your question only has edits related to some small typos and some minor corrections, there's absolutely no negative effect on the participation in the contest. If someone had to re-write most of your question because it was barely understandable or asked in a way that doesn't suit this site, then such edits will have a negative impact on the overall chances to be selected (but there's still a chance, given the question excel in all other categories).

Let me know if this helps.
