If I go to the suggested edits page, press reject on one of them, it shows up a dialog asking for the rejection reason. Then I run this in my browser's Javascript console


It enables the reject button and I can press the reject button and it successfully rejects the edit without me actually having to give a rejection reason.

The rejection should be validated by the server so that a rejection reason is actually required in order to successfully reject a suggested edit.

You can also just inspect the element and remove the disabled="disabled". Same thing. Either way, this is hilarious! Ohhhh, I wonder if I can edit the form to submit a rejection reason with my approval command. Let's try!!! – animuson Mar 28 '12 at 0:05
If you can turn this into a userscript to let me type a paragraph into the rejection reason, that'd be super. :) – sarnold Mar 28 '12 at 0:11
@sarnold: I don't get it. You already have that capability with the "Custom" rejection reason. – Robert Harvey Mar 28 '12 at 0:16
@Robert: Perhaps I should have said "Novel" instead of "Paragraph". I find I usually run out of space before I finish my sen – sarnold Mar 28 '12 at 0:19
Sadly, there will be no rejection novels: "An error has occurred when trying to reject - please try again" – Jeremy Banks Mar 28 '12 at 0:38
Thanks for looking, @Jeremy. :) – sarnold Mar 28 '12 at 1:55
Hmm, I have the same problem as @sarnold. I always just assumed I was the only one... Too bad it validates precisely the wrong thing. – Cody Gray Mar 28 '12 at 3:16

You seem to be using JavaScript to avoid clicking a button, are you sure that is what you want to do?

Where's the "yes, I'm sure" button? – Cody Gray Apr 12 '12 at 4:48
@TheEstablishment you need to use JavaScript to add it – waffles Apr 12 '12 at 4:49
