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

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
