What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 138 Stack Exchange communities.

I looked at one of my approved edits and found I had a whopping four rejected edits (that is much more than what I expected). I was able to see a snippet of a half a dozen recent edits and see the one that was rejected and I guessed why.

I would really like to see which others were rejected. How can I do that?

You can also use data to search for your suggestions that were rejected or approved. I have just created two queries for this:

Currently there is no way to automatically link the suggested edit (using Magic Column) in the result set, so you will need to enter the suggestion URL manually: http://stackoverflow.com/suggested-edits/{id}

I have added a feature-request for "Magic Column with arbitrary URL" which would allow to link the suggested edit page (and other pages as well) from query results frame.


"Magic Column with arbitrary URL" feature-request is implemented now. I have updated the queries and added a link to the suggested edit page itself.


I have fixed the scripts to return correct links for all StackExchange family of sites.

@doncherry SEDE only supports post links and user links –  Michael Mrozek Aug 31 '11 at 14:27
+1 for sheer stackawesomeness. –  Sold Out Activist Aug 31 '11 at 15:05
does this still work? i couldn't make it do. –  naxa Nov 27 '13 at 20:53
@naxa Yes, here is your accepted edits: data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/45756/… and rejected: data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/45755/… –  Idolon Nov 28 '13 at 13:00
ah I finally understand, my userid is different on the different sites. :D I misinterpreted 'works on all sites' and I also have to switch the data explorer with the switch sites box (now to DE). –  naxa Nov 28 '13 at 17:31
Is there a way to view my pending edits? they doesn't seem to be in this table. –  naxa Nov 28 '13 at 17:34
Is there a way to see the reason it was rejected? –  Jeff Bridgman Jan 24 '14 at 19:17
@naxa no as Data Explorer only contains historical data –  Idolon Feb 27 '14 at 23:47
@JeffBridgman currently no, but there is an open feature-request for adding rejection reason to SuggestedEditVotes table. You can vote for it here: meta.stackexchange.com/q/137364/158912 –  Idolon Feb 28 '14 at 0:04
the link is working for approved edits, but not for rejected... –  entre Nov 2 '14 at 14:21
I made a fork of the query for showing pending edits, but I guess it'll never work (I guess Data Explorer doesn't use live data): data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/288422/… –  jahu Mar 17 at 13:49

There's no convenient way, on your own and without a ♦, to see your history of edit suggestions short of keeping track of them yourself. Diamonds possess a limitted ability to view the history of edit suggestions of users, so you might be able to ask one to help you.

As a normal user, you can hackshod your way into finding out, though, by first finding any of your edit suggestions (approved or rejected), and checking the edit suggestion page. At the bottom will be a list of "recent edits", which will shuffle based on what edit suggestion you're looking at. The length of time this will take to sift through depends on your volume of suggestions, but I've successfully used it to review 30 of my edit suggestions once, so it should be able to find your rejections if you keep at it.

You may want to change the 'there is' to 'was' with a strike-see above :) –  Manishearth Mar 26 '12 at 10:19
@Manishearth Honestly, pointing out the (rather old by this point, but relative to this question) new "suggestions" tab would be the better point here. –  Grace Note Mar 26 '12 at 12:25
