Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 asked this question Can't debug Azure Applications with v1.5 of SDK and the answer was just a link to MSDN. So I edited the answer to include the relevant points from the linked site. My changes were then edited out leaving just an answer with a link again. Should I reedit the answer or post a new answer with the details?

It looks like the person that approved your edit also "improved" it by removing the substance of your edit. Without asking the person directly we can't know why.

I can't see anything wrong with your edit so I've rolled the answer back to your version.

In general I'd roll back to my edits the once (if I even noticed the change) and then leave it. If the post gets rolled back again you can flag it for moderator attention and they can lock it temporarily (or permanently if required) to prevent edit wars.

Actually, it looks like an Improved Suggested Edit where only part of the edit was accepted. – Rob Hruska Oct 17 '11 at 13:36
@RobHruska - you're right. I missed that the OP didn't have edit rights. – ChrisF Oct 17 '11 at 13:37
