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 edited a question for the first time, so my edit was queued for review.

The message I received was:

Thanks for your edit!
This edit will be visible only to you until it is peer reviewed.

I think it should read:

This edit will only be visible to you once it is peer reviewed.

What's grammatically wrong on it? – genesis Oct 25 '11 at 10:41
Nothing wrong with the message that I can see. – Ernest Friedman-Hill Oct 25 '11 at 11:30
to clarify, "peer reviewed" means reviewed by someone with edit privledges. – tombull89 Oct 25 '11 at 13:31
Sigh. I was obviously caffeine-deficient when I wrote this. – Noel Grandin Oct 25 '11 at 14:27

It's not a flaw. The last fragment means "until someone with enough reputation review and approve it".

The fragment can be changed to "and it will be visible to others once your edit is reviewed" but personally can't see any reason to change it, the current grammar is just fine.
