Why does this suggested edit have no diff?

I found a suggested edit where the user seems not to have edited anything.


Is it possible, or the suggested edit is not showing correctly the suggested edit?

Update: This has been already reported, but the other question is tagged , while the same issue showed up again.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

In an attempt to replicated the issue, I've submitted an edit which doesn't change the content and only replaces the paragraph formatting with HTML equivs. The submission went through, but I have no idea if the changes will show up in the diff. Can someone confirm? – Shawn Chin Nov 9 '11 at 12:01
Which was the post that you edited? – kiamlaluno Nov 9 '11 at 12:07 . Nevermind, that wasn't it. The markdown diff still showed the diff. Silly me. – Shawn Chin Nov 9 '11 at 12:18
Finally, a repro! – Shawn Chin Nov 9 '11 at 13:45
Has the bug been fixed? If it hasn't, then shouldn't the earlier post be un-status-completed if this one is to be closed as a dup? – Shawn Chin Nov 11 '11 at 10:05
@Dori: Why did you close this as a duplicate to a [status-completed] bug, when this is obviously not completed, as it still occurs? At least remove the [status-completed] from the other question then. – Paŭlo Ebermann Nov 12 '11 at 18:37

I've submitted an edit suggestion which adds extra spaces between words in the title, and lo and behold, we get no diffs.

This looks like the same bug as described here: Why does this suggested edit have no diff?

It is a bug, then. – kiamlaluno Nov 9 '11 at 13:46

Looking at the sources of the edits, there is indeed no difference (compare suggested post to original post, but you have to set the width of the original post to 100% using Firebug though).

Perhaps the edit comment is regarded as data for the 30 characters limit?

If it so, that is not what I would expect, and it would be a workaround for the "more than 6 characters edit" limit there is for suggested edits. – kiamlaluno Nov 9 '11 at 10:32
