Allow me to answer, RandomMan.
Are suggestion level edits (small grammar, broken vid, forgotten html code) worthy of given a person full editorship on an entry?*
I think it depends on the intensity of the mistake. If it’s just a tiny little grammar error or something, then no, I don’t think it justifies granting full editorship to somebody. In the case that it’s such a big problem that it needs an experienced editor to step in and fix it, then I think it’s alright.
Was I justified in removing editors who did nothing/hardly anything?
I like to think so. In my opinion, being an editor of an entry means that you should put at least some work into it; I’m sure that there would be other potential editors that deserve the spot more than somebody who takes the editorship for granted and slacks on the entry. If you aren’t going to take entry editing seriously, you shouldn’t be an entry editor. It’s as simple as that.
Even if it’s a moderator, I think that it is defensible. To serve as a moderator on this site, particularly in the entry field, you have to have a reputation for making good contributions. If you didn’t do that, then you wouldn’t have been given the privilege of moderator functions. Because of this, it’s innate that moderators are expected to use their powers responsibly and sensibly. Keeping in mind that an editorship is serious business, I don’t think that taking partial credit for a completed entry despite doing something impossibly small is fair, even for moderators.
I should also point out that it might be more unfair, as I’m sure it’s usually assumed that the moderator did most of the work on the entry. If they didn’t do anything or did very little, then it’s unfair to the users without moderator functions that did do work who are overlooked and don’t receive the credit that they deserve.
And is granting ourselves editorship for small edits just part of being a mod, or should we be asked (not forced) to have the dignity to remove ourselves for these entries?
I do indeed think that entry moderating crosses this field. The job of an entry moderator, as I see it, is to ensure and maintain quality on the site’s entries. If they see an error, by all means, they should go in and correct it, but they should take the responsibility to remove themselves so that they don’t steal the credit that the editors that did work ought to have.
