This is concerning http://stackoverflow.com/suggested-edits/208013.
I made an edit to Luchian Grigore's answer to fix some Java syntax errors. I personally tested my edits and double checked them to see if they were accurate.
Reviewer kleopatra rejected the edit with this comment:
This edit is incorrect or an attempt to reply to or comment on the existing post.
I then informed Luchian of what I discovered with this comment:
@Luchian - I attempted to edit this post to correct a couple of Java syntax errors, but I was rejected (go figure). 1. If there's an abstract method in a class, the entire class needs to be marked as abstract. 2. In the for loop, you have "i < superClassArray.size". That should be updated to "i < superClassInstance.length" to be consistent/correct with the rest of that code block.
He commented back "ah yes. thanks for that." and then approved the rejected edit.
Was my approach correct on this post or should I have gone about it a different way?
Also, is there a way to contest a rejected edit or request another review of it?
kiamlaluno made me aware (possibly without even knowing) that my edit changed a method in the OP's post that is NOT correct for the object type the OP posted (the "length" method does not exist for Collections in Java which is what I specified in my edit).
So...for the sake of correctness, should I make another edit or comment the post? Or, is it up to my discretion here?
Sorry for the strangeness in this situation but ultimately just looking for how I should handle this correctly in the future...
