Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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 like the addition of the "Improve" button in the review edits page. However, sometimes I only think of improving a post after choosing to accept/reject. Currently there is no way to do this other than waiting for the edit to be accepted/rejected and when there are <5 edits in the queue this can take a while.

Is there a workaround for this, or can this be added?

Yes, this is a problem. Another example: I voted to reject a trivial edit, here. Later I wanted to edit the question to remove an inappropriate tag (elisp). I fell into the same gotcha. Had I noticed the tag when I reviewed the edit, I would have removed it then. Too late. Now I'll forget to come back after the review is ended and remove the tag... – Drew Mar 16 at 16:39

You can still edit by visiting the edit link manually: http://stackoverflow.com/posts/12345/edit. As I write, this starts from the suggested version, but will merge the suggestion with your edit, reject the suggestion and not credit the suggester. Use with care.

That doesn't work for me: stackoverflow.com/questions/10748645/… – assylias May 25 '12 at 8:23
    
@assylias What doesn't work for you? The URL in your comment isn't like either of the URLs in my answer. – Gilles May 25 '12 at 9:29

I had appended /edit?improve=true to a question - I got it now - thanks. – assylias May 25 '12 at 9:33

Right now this is .

If it is a worthwhile post, I am sure it will be voted upon pretty fast, otherwise, bring it up in SE chat.
