I was testing some behavior with a low rep account, and when I was trying to suggest a few edits, I was greeted with the following message when trying to submit an edit:
Huh?!?!?! It was a suggested edit, so why are you telling me it needs to be a suggested edit?
Turns out it was a suggested edit conflict. The post in question had an existing suggested edit by the time I tried to submit mine. For brand new users, this is certainly not ideal behavior as it is only confusing to them.
Can this message be changed to something more descriptive? Or at least less confusing?
I would suggest
This edit cannot be submitted as there is a pending suggested edit on this post.
Note there is a question that looks similar, but is essentially different: "This edit would have to be a suggested edit" / edit button grayed out This is a feature request asking that the language be changed, while the other is a support question asking, basically, what it means.
