Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

So, I know that when a user with the ability to approve suggested edits, clicks Improve instead of Approve, if they got there first, the edit's marked as

Approved by {me}, Community♦

That's cool. But here's a case where I didn't click Improve. I'm sure of it. Well, pretty sure. I have been absent-minded today. Goes off to check Nope, definitely didn't. And I see:

What am I missing? Feature change? Did I suddenly aquire super-approve powers?

Ok, I think I see what's going on. Looking at the question edit history, I approved the suggested edit at exactly the same second as the OP edited their post. So, in essence, the OP "improved" the edit. Makes sense. I'll wait for a more official answer, and I'll answer it myself if that's not forthcoming. – Michael Petrotta Jan 5 '12 at 3:47
Community can actually accept suggested edits entirely on its own: -- which it has done a lot -- so there might be more to it. This question suggests another possibility... – sarnold Jan 5 '12 at 4:19
