FWIW: The Editor Requests
page continues to experience traffic and to serve a useful function (though it has a less prominent roll than it once had when it was a direct route to vroom
and the only way to request a change in content).
Although many kinds of requests appear there, it seems to be most useful when a monk who does not yet have the power to submit nodes for Consideration notices something in a top-level node of their own that needs fixing. By 'needs fixing' I mean an obvious typo or an error in describing a problem -- not a Perl error.
It is also quite possible for such a person to request consideration through the ChatterBox, but some people seem to prefer the Editor Requests option.
Not all requests are carried out and the usual caveats about re-writing history apply.
Update: I just noticed that the node in question is in the Categorized Questions and Answers section. This means that there is another group, the QandAEditors, who are involved and can assist in fixing things if that is needed. IIRC, regular Editors do not have edit access to nodes in this area.
