I've come across a small issue which occurs when a question has been closed but the question itself or one of its answers are being edited.
Steps to reproduce:
- Visit a closed question. (even closed years ago)
- In a different tab or browser, edit the question or one of its answers.
- "an edit has been made to this post; click to load" message will appear above the edited post in the first tab/browser, click it.
.question-statusdiv becomes hidden, which includes the closed notice below a question and, for a duplicate-closed question, the list of duplicates above the question body. This gives the appearance that the question is no longer closed (until you refresh).
I know it isn't common/important but it did confuse me when looking at a particularly bad question - I thought it had been reopened.
Is this an intentional feature? If so, what was the thinking behind it?
