I thought about pre-defined reject reasons for suggested edits, and here are two I think might be helpful:

Edit changes code of question

As discussed in this meta post, editing the code of a question is not recommended. But right now, there does not exist a pre-defined reject reason for this rule. I think it would be good to have it for

  • new people who maybe don't know that this would be a valid reject reason
  • people who do not want to write a custom reject reason each time

Edit is too minor [for an old question]

It seems that the general consensus in this question about minor edits is that there are at least some circumstances in which an edit might be considered too minor to approve. If that turns out to be the case, a pre-defined reject reason for this case might be helpful.

Well, Stack Exhange just got rid of the "Too Minor" reject button, so my guess is that's out.

I am 100% behind getting a reject reason for "Edit changed the code to be reviewed". Almost every time (to my recollection) that I reject an edit, it's because a well meaning person reformatted the code. We reject those edits because formatting is a valid subject for review. It would be nice to have a standardized rejection at the click of a button instead of typing out something (inevitably different) each time.

That said, I have no idea if it's even possible for an edit rejection reason to be added for just one site.
