A useful edit was rejected. I had previously edited the code in an answer of mine, but failed to replace a reference to a temp variable I had removed. An astute reader noticed the problem and proposed an edit -- only to have it rejected.
Basically, I would like to give the guy credit for his work, and save him from any adverse consequences of the rejected edit. What can I do? Not much, I suppose, other than review his recent activity and +1 where it makes sense, to compensate. But I'm thinking there should be a way to contest rejected edits somehow. Or can I flag the edit reason for moderator attention somehow?
Also related, tangentially related.
