I have an edit robot icon next to one of my articles. It's great that they made some corrections, but I can't see what they corrected nor can I remove the icon from my account
Click the icon. It should take you to a page Edit History. There you can View Changes. The icon stays and cannot be removed.
Thank you for your reply. I saw the 2 errors that the bot fixed...great gizmo. But how does it make sense to leave the icon on there? Suppose, I edit that particular article, and I make some more grammatical or spelling errors. If the icon is always there, then how I know that I made those new mistakes? Do I make a valid point?
It is indeed a great gizmo, but it's not perfect and does make errors. Do check any hub that has been edited and make sure your meaning is still there. A simple grammatical change that looks good to the robot can, and has been known to, change the entire meaning of a sentence or paragraph.
I just checked my account, and the edit bot is gone.
It makes sense now.

I've been away longer than thought. Edit bot, huh? Well, I like it. It spots those errors I miss after reading, correcting, rereading, and correcting multiple times thereafter. I wish there were a way to edit the few,...
