  • As [@Lundin](https://meta.codidact.com/posts/281615#answer-281615) explained why minor edits shouldn't bump post. I will say why it has to.
  • For old posts :
  • - There's lot of questions haven't answered in SE sites. Suppose, I had edited that post's title(too minor). So, it will bump. And, new members can see that post. Suppose, one of new member is very professional who has experience to answer that post. If he answers on that post than it will be helpful for others. That's why minor edit is good for old posts.
  • For new posts :
  • - Suppose, one day I found a post which I can answer with beautiful explanation. But, I was busy(someone died). So, I had to go there too fast. So, I couldn't answer that post. And, I was using that site as private(incognito) mode. So, I won't find that post in my history. After coming back I was searching for that post. But, I don't remember title or something else. So, I couldn't find that post. If you do a minor edit to that post than it will bump. Then, I can find it (if I am active) not always. So, if I find it I can write answer beautifully and gain more reputation. That's why minor edit is good.
  • While I was writing the post I was searching posts like this in SE also. I found a beautiful [answer](https://meta.stackoverflow.com/a/253512/13146129).

  • For old posts :
  • - There's a lot of questions haven't answered in SE sites (It will happen to Codidact when very professional people will ask question). Suppose, I am having `grub-loader` issue on internet. I found some unanswered question in `Power Codidact` (The site isn't available yet but, I am using Codidact instead of SE). If I edit title/tag only in that post. So, it will bump. For that reason new user can see that post and some of them may answer on that post. If someone answer on that post than it will be helpful for others(who are facing the issue). So, minor is good.
  • For new posts :
  • - I found a post in Software Codidact which I can answer and, that is very hard. But I am familiar with that bug. So, no one answered on that question. But, I was very busy that moment. In Codidact there's no way to bookmark post as SE has. And, If I use Codidact than history won't be saved. I became very busy with my works that's why I couldn't answer on that post. So, when I come back again to answer on that question. I notice that I was using this site (Software Codidact) in private (also known as incognito) mode. Although I was searching that post. But, I couldn't find out. So, if you do minor edit in that post. Then, it will bump So, I can find the post easily cause, it will show in top (But, if doesn't bump. Then, it will remain unanswered). That's why minor edit is good.
