It's a question that I've had in mind since I joined. Whenever an article is being corrected, I
wonder if the reason for correction is the writer used a wrong word or phrase or if it's just because the person correcting felt their diction is preferable?

I can't answer for others, but I correct things that I perceive to be incorrect. I generally try to keep the essay as intact as possible, and don't like to completely re-write things unless there are major problems.

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.
