What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 140 Stack Exchange communities.

If somebody submits an edit and the post has changed in the meantime, the edit fails with an error message and the user needs to resubmit it on the latest revision. The same doesn't happen with edit suggestions; this suggestion was started before revision 3, but submitted 8 seconds after. Since the edit suggestion was using the text from revision 2, the diff makes it look like Tim is suggesting a bunch of terrible changes.

Can the system show the same error message 2k users get if a user submits an edit suggestion and the post has already been edited in the interim?

@Jarrod I think such thing is implemented (or merging of edits) this better be changed to status-completed isn't it? :) –  Shadow Wizard Jul 2 '12 at 7:48
@ShaWizDowArd This isn't implemented; it just happened again here –  Michael Mrozek Jul 9 '12 at 20:18
