So, I just had these two edit reviews happen to me:
The first one was obviously correctly rejected, so the editor apparently attempted to edit it again just two minutes later, with pretty much the same content (except differnt formatting).
Now for some reason I can’t understand, this actually went through the review process. Although there were two rejects and two approves, the third approve actually completed the review and published the edit.
Now it’s already hard for me to grasp why one would accept that edit. But I somewhat see the missing context at fault here. Reviewers don’t see the question, the comments, or even who asked the question (in this case, I think it would be a lot easier to see that it’s an invalid edit if it was clear, that the editor was actually the one asking the original question).
But what puzzles me the most is that after the edit was uniformly rejected at first, another nearly identical edit was possible just two minutes later. I would like to see some threshold here that prevents rejected editors from trying again until they find reviewers who incorrectly let it through. Or at least some warning (especially for the one asking the question) that editing an answer like that might not be what they should do in this case.
What do you think?
