Yesterday, I added an overview-link for . I saw it "in the queue" with the remark that the edit will be only visible when it has been reviewed.

Today I no longer see anything related to my edit yesterday.

So has my edit been rejected? I cannot see anything.

Thank you. So there was no notification I missed? –  false Nov 23 '12 at 17:58
    
@false No, you don't get notified for approved* / rejected suggestions. (* you might see +2 reputation if the edit is approved) –  Rob W Nov 23 '12 at 18:00

@false feature request for notifications like you'd expect is probably this one: Decision on rejected edits should be displayed as a notification to the editor –  gnat Nov 23 '12 at 18:28
    
@gnat: Thank you, seems again that actual contributions are discouraged ; while click-through reviews are encouraged but sneered at (in one of the last podcasts). So SO is selecting a unique breed of reviewers. –  false Nov 23 '12 at 18:45
    
@false that's sad indeed. As far as I can tell the motivation behind silent edit rejections looks nice at the first sight but becomes rather slippery in mote thorough analysis. BTW they also say SO is working on what you call selecting a unique breed of reviewers... one can only hope the work is over before thoughtful reviewers all run away :( –  gnat Nov 23 '12 at 18:57
    
@gnat: I listened to a/the last podcast: They discussed how to demean "serial accepters" by finding some name for them like "robovoters" or the like. Instead of realizing that people go for low-hanging fruits, in particular in a system were some fruits do hang too low. The meta-feedback loop for such items is not the best. But to be fair, a lot of things do work perfectly here! –  false Nov 23 '12 at 19:10
