unnecessary teaser alterations

over 18 months ago I wrote in this forum to complain that many of the £ symbols in my teasers had been turned into $ symbols for no reason what so ever. you asked me to resubmit the changes under the "Correct a teaser" feature so they could be altered back again, which I duly did. Like i said that was over a year and a half ago, and they are still on the list waiting to be done. Do you actually have any editors that look at this feature? Surely waiting more than a year to have teasers corrected, especially when it had been agreed in here that they would be done as the original edit was was unnecessary to begin with.

in fact I have just had a look and it was back in February 2012, so almost 2 years. Is there any active editors?

My guess is that they have gotten into a limbo state where they can't get enough votes either for or against the correction so they stay in the voting process until it tips one way or the other.

there is no voting to do, the teasers were originally submitted with "£" symbols and changed to "$" for no conceivable reason. They were all changed once before about 6 years ago from £ to $ and I had to re-edit them all back.
Why are such changes even allowed when it is completely and totally unnecessary in the first place?
I think the editor deadlock is at fault, after all they are all correction on my own teasers and therefore "editor deadlock" is a very poor excuse indeed.
You really need to have editors that actually read teasers and actually decide if a teaser really merits the edit, i mean what f i went around randomly changing the $ symbol on other teasers to £ I assume that the editors would happily and unnecessarily change them all for me?
or what if I went around changing all American spelling to English ones? A totally unnecessary edit, but surely one the editors would support going by past examples!
Great stuff, some easy points here i come!!

well two months on and still nothing has been done!
So that is now over two years for some one to pull their finger out and sort the edits.
