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

A user submitted an edit for his post with the comment "edited tags":

But it looks like nothing at all changed:

Nothing changed, but there's a change

( and were there with the first version of the post.)

The user added some tags, then edited again to remove the new tags. Because this was done in the 5 minute "quick edit" window, it appears as if nothing changed.

We'll look at just destroying the null edit in these cases.

We've since revised our solution here from Jarrod due to exploits as explained elsewhere. Now, any null edits of this sort will instead be an empty revision but explicitly state "Edit removed during grace period".
