Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

When I recently experienced an edit collision, I got the (new and improved!) text:

This post has been edited 1 time since you began. Your edit can only be saved if it is more thorough than the currently saved edit.

How do I determine if my edit is "more thorough"? Does the system do that magically? (There's a lot of amazing magic here. :) Or am I supposed to gauge "more thorough"? How? I can't easily see the new text and my text side-by-side. Or did I miss how?
