I made the following suggested edit: https://stackoverflow.com/review/suggested-edits/2776889
With the edit, the answer is complete and useful to any person who reads the answer. Without the edit, the next person who reads it will have to spend some hours to research what I already solved.
This is what the reviewers said:
- This edit is incorrect or an attempt to reply to or comment on the existing post: do you really think that all the code I added should be in a comment?
- This edit changes too much in the original post; the original meaning or intent of the post would be lost: it completes the original post, but does not change it.
I feel bad because I spent some time completing the answer just to help the next person who reads it, and the reviewers rejected it, possibly without reading what I wrote.
