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

For some reason, the history of a tag wiki with a suggested edit approved with improvements from the reviewer may be listed out of order:

Tag wiki history with out-of-order edits

This can prove confusing when the edit history is reviewed. Is this normal?

This happens with questions as well: in this question, revision 3 appears before revision 2, and after posting the improvement, the rendered HTML for the question was that of the suggested edit, not that of the improvement. Furthermore, an edit by the improver in the 5-minute grace window was counted as a separate edit (which showed up in the right order).

The funny is that the numbers are correct. :) It is not normal, and it is the first time I see this. – kiamlaluno Jul 13 '12 at 5:34
This isn't specific to tag wikis. The rendering is wrong, too. This is definitely a new bug from yesterday. – Gilles Jul 14 '12 at 22:32
Here's another… you don't see the last revision unless you edit or see the history – random Jul 16 '12 at 23:32

A fix for this will be deployed in the next push. Thanks for the report!

Users can still see the edits out of order, but now with the numbering correctly ordered, see Suggested edit comes after the improved one – Martijn Pieters Jul 18 '12 at 12:33
@Geoff, I've run across this twice in the last few days (well, really, both times that I cared to check). Occurrence 1 and occurrence 2. Ignore the edits I'll likely make now in revision 5 of the first occurrence. – Michael Petrotta Jan 16 '13 at 1:50
And actually, as I look at it - some of the changes attributed to me in revision 2 of the second occurrence, I made, and some, I didn't. And intelis made none of the changes in revision 3. It's all pretty confused, really. – Michael Petrotta Jan 16 '13 at 1:54
This is an issue (again), as @MichaelPetrotta said:… — and here: – slhck Jan 27 '13 at 12:32
