Require more than two coinciding votes to approve/reject a suggested edit

I have a case of a suggested edit, approved by two reviewer, but eventually rejected. How may this happen?

enter image description here


When has the update been released?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Since a recent change, suggested edits on Stack Overflow are now approved or rejected by a best-of-five decision, so three consenting votes are needed. On the other sites, previously only one vote was needed, now two are needed.

So with two approve votes, the suggestion was not yet accepted, and an edit by the OP while the suggestion was pending would automatically cause a rejection.

    That does not explain the apparently "mysterious" rejection though. Although I think we might have a simple "grace period" edit by the OP causing the rejection. Speculation though. – Bart Oct 18 '12 at 14:12

    See this related question where I reached the same conclusion. – ShaWiz Oct 18 '12 at 14:26
