I just got a good suggested edit, but I wanted to tweak the title some more. If I choose to improve this edit, will Diago still get his +2 reputation bonus?

Aaargh Diago, don't change "dependent" to "dependant"! – mmyers Feb 24 '11 at 16:27
    
@mmyers Say, is the difference there covered in English Language & Usage yet? Because I had thought it was correct, which is why I approved it rather than improved it. – Grace Note Feb 24 '11 at 16:30

@Grace Note: I think "dependant" might be a British usage. Let me look up the question. Edit: Here you go. – mmyers Feb 24 '11 at 16:31
    
@mmyers Thank you much! Looks like I double-botched on this one, eheh. – Grace Note Feb 24 '11 at 16:33
    
@Michael Oh, I'm not annoyed. I learned to love it. – badp Feb 24 '11 at 16:40

Interesting question, thanks for asking it. @GraceNote: Here in Britain, we consider our children dependants because they are dependent on us. The term in the question should be "level-dependent" in British usage too, because it's an adjectival phrase. Anyhoo... – AndrewC Sep 20 '12 at 3:28

Yes; it shows up as back to back edits in the revision history, and the original suggester gets the rep for their edit, even though yours immediately modifies it
