As advice to an individual editor on how to deal with good faith but problematics edits, I
would say give the newbie feedback on exactly what the specific problem is with their
reverted edit explain how to fix it, and continue to watch the article and their user talk
page to see how they are going, and keep offering help until they get it right.
For my long answer on how to do it at scale, see my other longer email.

This discussion about reverts, combined with my recent experience on ENWP, makes me wonder
if there's a way to make reverts feel less hostile on average. Do you have any ideas
about how to do that?
