What incentives are there currently to edit and moderate? Should there be more?
On Stack Exchange, I spent a significant portion of my time on the site editing posts, because the idea of an SE site as a repository of useful reference information has long appealed to me.

Being new to Codidact, I am currently taking it all in and trying to observe to what extent one feels naturally inclined to begin editing pre-existing posts and content into a more polished or finished form, based on the site’s current design.

So far, I do not know if there is a small reputation reward for having a suggested edit on another’s post accepted by a mod, which is one incentive. If Codidact strives even more than Stack Exchange to encourage people to constantly refine and improve the existing content, should the incentives to make quality edits here be higher, than on SE? On SE, a normal upvote is worth 10 points; an accepted edit is generally worth 2. Could Codidact reward even slightly higher; with a rep boost of 3? Or with any other system, such as points relative to the amount of accepted edit content (i.e., proportional to the number of characters added, in an edit, or soemthing?)
