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

In the "review edits" page, sometimes I come across a suggested edit which is fine, except for maybe a couple of finishing touches that need to be applied. I approve the edit, but then the link to the question completely disappears, and I'm not able to get back to the post again, unless I remembered the title so I can search for it.

Before you say it, yes I could open a separate window with the linked page in it (if I remember), but at the moment I'm working from an IPad, and that's not the easiest thing to do on an iPad.

So it would be nice if the link only stayed on the screen, so I could click on it and get to the edited question, if I wanted to.

10k users can also check the recent edits list, and mods can check the suggested edits dashboard. But definitely that would make things a lot easier – Michael Mrozek Feb 6 '11 at 0:47
For non-moderators there is the additional problem that half of the time you can't do those finishing touches anyway, because instead you have to wait until the post is approved by a second person. – sth Feb 6 '11 at 3:12
solution: get a Macbook air, or another real computer :) – Jeff Atwood Feb 6 '11 at 10:53
I have been bitten by this multiple times. We are looking at a way of improving this, I dislike that stuff just vanishes and you have no undo button. – waffles Feb 7 '11 at 9:54


We now always float a link up to the top of the page containing suggested edit and post
