As a copy editor of a newspaper, what are the most and least important edits one has to make?
It would be great if you could loosely rank each type of mistake, a list of which contains but is not limited to: wrongly spelled names/words, incorrect formatting, grammatical errors (missing commas/periods), factual inaccuracies. Thanks for the help

" factual inaccuracies" would be the least important. No form of media seems to worry about accuracy or facts these days.
