I haven't studied the edits for long, but I think those null edits are trying to fix indexing. Have you sent a PM?

Null-edits aren't against the rules unless they're used for shady reasons.

Okay, I guess I have to explain myself. The reason why I'm making these "null edits" is primarily to "fix" the way indexes are ordered at the bottom of pages. I know it sounds strange and weird and maybe pointless, but I'm not doing anything out of malicious intent. If this really is a violation of the rules then I can stop.

Knew it. Don't worry, there's nothing wrong with empty edits if there's a purpose to them.

I think another way to fix indexing issues is to edit the page type on the sidebar and click cancel without changing anything.

So it was just to fix indexing huh? Alright, I apologize because I didn't know any better.


How well does it match the trope?
