There's a pending tag wiki edit which actually makes no changes at all as far as I can make out. As far as I can see there's a bug somewhere, the side by side diffs show no change and the markdown diffs show no change either. (Shows 7 identical lines skipped). I can't see any <!-- extra space --> tricks there even. It's more extreme than this similar question since I can see the space changes in that edit.

Is it a bug in the diff viewer not showing some change? The changelog says "changed 11 characters in the body". Why would anyone want to make an edit like that to a tag-wiki? Is it just cheating for the tag-editor badge? (Looks like it's not the first time they've tried this on a tag-wiki too)

  • The user got the tag-editor badge on 17 Feb 2011, so I doubt that's the motivation. Commented Oct 10, 2011 at 14:57

    @JasonPlank - unless they believe it can be awarded multiple times perhaps
