Why do I keep getting edit requests?

I keep getting edit requests for projects I've never even posted. I have thought it might be bots because none of the accounts have any avatar or many projects at all. However, some do have projects. So I don't really know where these people are coming from, and they just randomly will send an edit request without even a comment. Is anyone else getting these random requests to edit?

Yeah I get those a lot too.
Many users probably click that button on accident, or they just want to edit

Maybe they're trying to fork but instead accidentally try to edit.

what's the difference between an edit request and someone forking your repl?

When you fork a repl, you are just copying the code to a separate project owned by you. When you send an edit request, you are asking the person to edit the original repl. Hopefully this helps.
