On Wiki Pedia, for example, when you make an edit (to the source) , there is a box called "Common edit summaries."
And also minor edit summaries.
So that many common edits can be given quick summaries, to save time.
It's not that important at Wiki (since edit summaries aren't compulsoury), but I guess it would be very useful here at Physics.SE. Not just for edits, but for comments, also. For example, I find that I'm often repeating the same comment:
"+1 Nice question!"
"+1 Nice answer!"
"Huh? This is very unclear?! What are you even talking about?" . / . .
Which means coming to meta ($ \geq $ 1 min waiting time), searching for [faq] ($ \geq 30 $ seconds waiting time), then clicking ($ \geq 30 $ seconds waiting time), Linking to it and parsing the link and adding the text ($ \geq 1 $ minute typing time), which amounts to 4 minutes. Well, that's not that long, but this same process is repeated for multiple, multiple posts. So,
Question 1. Could there be a feature "Common coments".
Now, for the edits. Till recently, I would just write something like, because its quick:
Or something like that. Recently, for some reason, I got bored of typing nonsense, so I just type.
"Added homework tag."
"Added popular-science tag."
"Don't use big-list tag."
"It seems as if the homework tag applies even if it isn't real homework." (Yup, that's copied from Qmechanic.)
"Removed irrelevant tags."
"Removed irrelevant tag."
"Removed irrelevant reference-request tag."
"Removed irrelevant string-theory tag. This is a kinematics question."
"Removed irrelevant string theory tag."
"Removed irrelevant research-level tag."
"Removed irrelevant Mathematical Physics tag."
"Removed unnecessary Controversial statements."
And such things. It is quite monotonous to repeatedly write this, so
Question 2: Could the same feature as requested in Q1 be applied to Edit Summaries too? (It would be even better if the system would detect the tags which have been changed, like if I add a pop-sci tag, for e.g., then it has in the common edit summaries, "Added Popular-Science tag.", but perhaps that's just too much.) . .
