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 (2k+ -- if security is working properly; I don't have a test account to check with)

While I only have 68 upvotes in that tag (need 100 to edit), I can view the revision history, which I think is fine.

What caught my attention is that I can see the "Edit" and "Rollback" links. So naturally I got curious.

I made a small edit based on revision 5 (I shouldn't have been able to get to the edit page at all). When I hit submit, I got the kitty-cat, but when returning to the revisions list, I discovered that a new revision was created anyway with the modified content. (At the end of the 1st paragraph, I changed the markdown from underscores to asterisks. Click on the edit link to see the source since it doesn't show up in the diff view.)

I was also able to roll back my changes using the Rollback link. (This should not be allowed.)

And I also got the tag editor badge for the first edit. (Which I totally don't deserve. lol)

I did a quick test just now; looks like it's all fixed up. I'll test it more thoroughly when I get home. Thanks! – Jon Seigel Sep 2 '10 at 17:47
