Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

I just used the improve option on a suggested edit. Specifically, this one, if it matters.

It was not very helpful (it just added an unnecessary platform tag), so I unchecked the box, but every time I tried to submit it, I'd get a 500 server error.

I tried a few different things (leaving the tags alone, leaving the body alone, typing in a revision summary), but the culprit seems to have been the "was this helpful" checkbox. As soon as I left it checked, the suggested edit went through fine.

Well, I broke this when fixing something else.

It turns out that the community user, when rejecting edits, doesn't give a rejection reason. And so (and well-deservedly, one might say) he's getting the buster message. Literally – this is from our error log:


Fixed now.
