Let me start by saying this is not a flame attempt, I just want to know why when I put the time into fixing a question (link didn't work and was unnecessary messy at the bottom of the post) it is rejected, then the mod that rejects my edit edits the question and fixes the link I had already fixed? I spent time doing this edit to make the question easier to use and fix a broken link. So why reject it if your just going to do it yourself?

  • Is this a problem all the time, or was this a one time event (that may have been accidental)? What happens if a mod edits a post on their own, without looking at the suggested edits queue? – Tester101 May 10 '12 at 16:30

    So when a mod opens a question with a pending edit it isn't displayed that there are pending edits next to the edit link? That may be why. And may be worth a feature request if that I'd the case. – UNECS May 10 '12 at 21:29

    Obviously, I'm not ChrisF, but if I had to guess, it's because your edit wasn't bad but ChrisF had a better edit that he could prepare for the question. It's not personal; he saw your effort, but felt he could make the post look even better by using image markdown, which a lot of people don't know. If it helps, it's happened to me before, and I work here! – Aarthi May 11 '12 at 3:41
  • That'd be far enough but it seems that was the next edit that used image markdown – UNECS May 13 '12 at 3:15
  • @Aarthi is it displayed if there is a pending edit when a mod opens a question or is it only shown in there pending edits list? – UNECS May 13 '12 at 3:16
  • @UNECS Mods (and 10k users) can see when an edit is pending for a post. It displays on the post itself and in the queue. – Aarthi May 13 '12 at 15:53
