What is the correct action when reviewing this suggested edit?
I approved the edit based on:
- It's an answer, not a question
- The original answer was given 18 months ago
- The original answerer has not been online for over a year
- I'm not enough of an expert to confirm its accuracy - but based on my experience, the new information is more than plausable.
- The information being added does not appear in any other answer or comment
It was rejected by all other reviewers as
an attempt to reply to or comment on the existing post.
I can understand that reason, and actually expected exactly that result - and I'm wondering what the best way to deal with these types of corrections or updates would be.
Note that I'm not in any way upset about this or arguing that my vote was the right one.
I'm just looking for information on how this type of a correction should be handled.
