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

I've seen this several times already:

Note the timestamps on the two edits, they were submitted at the same time. The 2nd part of the edit often looks like a pointless one, as it did in this case. I probably shouldn't have rejected it.

I retagged this to "support", if there is a concrete way you would like me to improve the UI please let me know – waffles Feb 22 '11 at 3:33

Tag wikis are made of two parts ....

Part one is the excerpt (which shows up in the hover menu) - it is linked to post 1

Part two is the wiki body (which shows up when you view the wiki) - it is linked to a second post.

When people edit tag wikis they trigger edits on 2 posts. In this particular case there was and edit to the excerpt (titled: libsndfile tag wiki excerpt) and and edit to the wiki body.

Sometimes people do a good job with an excerpt edit and a bad job with the wiki edit. So it is split to allow us the fidelity to accept or reject a part.

All that said, there is certainly a bug in the UI if it is confusing you. How would you clarify this?

Never noticed "excerpt" on the blue label on the left before. Well, I know it's there now... – Uphill Luge Feb 9 '11 at 3:36
