This question already has an answer here:

I reviewed this SO suggested edit some days ago. After I rejected it, something similar to this suggested edit (documented in this Meta question) happened:

Approved Jun 17 at 11:07:

michaelb958 reviewed this Jun 17 at 11:06: Reject
This edit is incorrect or an attempt to reply to or comment on the existing post.

And that's all there was.

Viewing the post's revision history indicates the edit was actually approved. The Meta question I linked to dates from 2012, and indicates that whatever bug was responsible was fixed. (Also, that was a question, whereas this is an answer.) What's going on here?


Edit: This bug report provides a possible explanation - at time of writing, if the OP approves an edit after running out of suggested edit reviews, it doesn't show up on the edit's summary.

  • The second suggested edit you link to was approved by the post owner (different background colour to the username). This didn't appear to happen in your example. – ben is uǝq backwards Jun 22 '13 at 14:02
  • @benisuǝqbackwards Maybe it did; I can't tell, because the suggested-edit page isn't showing me. – michaelb958 Jun 22 '13 at 14:04
  • @michaelb958: Because OP approved it. – ABC Jun 22 '13 at 15:19

    @Mr.ØØ7 But the suggested edit page should show you if the OP approved it, that it doesn't would be a bug, not intended behavior. – Servy Sep 4 '13 at 0:02

    Darn it @9Shogs, you come to mark your question as a dupe and some staffer's already done it... – michaelb958 Dec 30 '13 at 4:42
