Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

This reopen review popped up in the queue (and was unanimously left closed).
Update: The review link now points to a different edit (the latest one).

Not very different...

It states that a revision was made after it was closed, but... it wasn't revised much!

In fact, looking at the revision history it seems to show 4 characters have been added at the end.

Still not very different

Perhaps there should be a higher threshold on what an edit counts towards to reopen queue?
Adding whitespace seems like it shoudn't really count!

It could be that the edit was reverted within the grace period, but, if so, shouldn't the reopen queue be basing its calculation (and decision to put in the queue) after the grace period...

Interestingly I can't (on latest chrome) click inline or side-by-side markdown links now for that review. – George Duckett Apr 25 '13 at 13:33
Little weird how there were characters added in, but no fixes to the obvious errors, which would have been an easy fix. – CBredlow Apr 25 '13 at 13:33
@GeorgeDuckett me too come to think of it, that's how I ended up at the revision page (!) – hayd Apr 25 '13 at 13:36

@CBredlow: Given that users are very creative when it comes to pumping their question or circumventing "problems" (does not meer our quality standards), I am not surprised at all. – Time Traveling Bobby Apr 25 '13 at 13:42
That edit was so minor, it was below pixel level. – Toon Krijthe Apr 25 '13 at 13:48
@SulfurizedDemonbobby: Yes. I've seen so many users try to work around the reasons they can't post instead of just fixing their post! – Rocket Hazmat Apr 25 '13 at 14:34
I think edits reverted in the grace period now show a revision that states something like "edit removed inside the grace period" actually – Ben Brocka Jun 6 '13 at 13:37
