Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I was reviewing suggested edits when I ran across this one (to this question):

enter image description here

I expected to see some Approve or Reject buttons, but instead, it sits there just daring me to try anything. It's survived a few refreshes. It might as well be wearing a troll face.

EDIT: the question was migrated, likely after the suggested edit was made.

This was happening on locked posts.

I changed it so when a post is locked all suggested edits are rejected by the community user with the note:

Post was locked - suggested edit can not be processed

That happens whenever a post is locked after the edit is submitted. Locking happens either when a question is migrated or (rarely) when a moderator hit the “lock” button. I believe suggested edits are deleted when a question is deleted, though there may be a race condition if the edit is submitted close to the time of deletion.

The behavior of suggested edits on migrated questions was changed recently. Looks like a bug crept in then.
