I've been reviewing suggested edits over the past several minutes, and the same edits have been reappearing multiple times (5+) after performing an action on them. I even check my action was "saved," and it reappears a few suggested edits later. What gives?

    Um... those links are 2 different suggestions – Doorknob Jun 13 '13 at 18:24
  • Those are the two edits that kept reappearing. – Kermit Jun 13 '13 at 18:25
  • Could you link to the reappearances? – Doorknob Jun 13 '13 at 18:26
  • Link to them? As in the links in my question aren't sufficient? – Kermit Jun 13 '13 at 18:27
  • No, you only linked to them once. You said that you saw them 5 times or more, right? Could you link to the next times you saw them? – Doorknob Jun 13 '13 at 18:27
  • They had the same URL each time they reappeared. – Kermit Jun 13 '13 at 18:28
  • Oh, so you've seen the same URL more than once in the queue? Okay, well that's really odd... (+1) – Doorknob Jun 13 '13 at 18:29
  • That's what I'm saying. – Kermit Jun 13 '13 at 18:30

    Seems to be working fine for me. Also, damn you for piquing my curiosity and luring me back into the Suggested Edit queue... – LittleBobbyTables - Au Revoir Jun 13 '13 at 18:39

    @LBT I will pay you 1000 Yen for your troubles. – Kermit Jun 13 '13 at 18:47

    @FreshPrinceOfSO - you don't have to do that; besides, I only accept Unicorn-bucks – LittleBobbyTables - Au Revoir Jun 13 '13 at 18:49
  • Are you using the back button in your Chrome browser? You'll get an old copy of the page, if you're doing that. – user102937 Jun 13 '13 at 18:52

    @RobertHarvey Nope. I would submit the edit and it would take me right back to it as if it was my first review. So I would review edit 1, 2, then 3 would recycle 5 times, review 4, 5, then 6 would recycle 5 times, review 7, 8 and 6 would reappear. I know that they can reappear in the same queue if another edit takes place, but it's the recycling of the same edit that left me curious. – Kermit Jun 13 '13 at 18:53
  • You mean approve the edit, right? – user102937 Jun 13 '13 at 18:53

    @RobertHarvey I believe the back button will show you the results, not acutally go back. – user188031 Jun 13 '13 at 23:05
