What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

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.

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
