A big thing I try and do is get new users to edit their own questions/answers when its required (and not for instance something inflammatory; I edit myself then.)
I do this because it gives them a sense of ownership and responsibility over their post, that they may not have due to coming from a standard forum. It's also a lot friendlier than 'forcing' a change to a post that's supposedly 'wrong'.
However I often see someone else making the edit after I post a comment, and a new user doesn't learn about editing or the responsibilities.
What do people think? Is this worthwhile doing?
