# Avoid useless edit about byte count

I like having my byte count history this way:

210 212 219

But there is some user that keep editing my answers to put it this way:

212 219 210

Citing @PhiNotPi "This edit does not make the post even a little bit easier to read, easier to find, more accurate or more accessible."

What can I do to avoid these kind of edits, apart from posting my complaint here?

• Out of curiosity, why do you prefer it? – lirtosiast Feb 15 '16 at 20:21
• @ThomasKwa because the first number is the important one, all the rest is just there as a remainder – edc65 Feb 15 '16 at 20:38
• Considering that most users now put bytes at the end of the header, it makes the most sense to have the final score at the end before the word. – mbomb007 May 22 '17 at 21:36

• @Neil It ignores numbers that are struck out, but if there are multiple numbers not inside <s></s> e.g. because of something like 23 + 21 = 44 bytes then the last such number is used. – Martin Ender Feb 15 '16 at 8:53
