This question kind of proceeds from a comment I made on another thread yesterday. At the time I commented I had just been blocked from editing but I hadn't explored the functionality further.
I have just used the improve feature for the first time. I edited the pending edit, then when I pressed save the revised question was posted, with me as the latest changer. I wasn't expecting that. I now read the relevant FAQ but it doesn't discuss improve.
I have gone into the question and the edit history lists the junior editor and me as two separate changes. So, my question is, does this mean the junior editor still gets credit (i.e. the two rep points) for their contribution to the revised text?
And, as I type, a second question occurs to me: doesn't this behaviour subvert the whole "two votes to approve" thang?
I'm tagging this as a bug because I think the FAQ ought to be clearer. Yet seemed too trivial for a feature-request.
