I've noticed a inconsistency in my ability to edit posts that have a edit pending:

The normal edit button is disabled as it should be.
However, if the post has an edit history, I can open it, then select edit on one of the revisions (and edit -> save), circumventing the edit lock.

Is this functionality intentional?

  • If you start editing before the suggested edit is submitted then submit your edit after there is already a suggested edit, your edit kicks the suggested edit out causing insta-rejection. This is probably the same thing, from a different angle so don't think it is a bug. – ShaWiz May 7 '14 at 10:58
  • @ShadowWizard: The problem is that this way, you can start editing after an edit was suggested, kicking the suggestion out, when you save it. – Cerbrus May 7 '14 at 11:02
  • @ShadowWizard: This isn't necessarily a rollback-related issue. The problem is that the edit option is available in the question's history. – Cerbrus May 7 '14 at 11:21
  • Editing to previous revision is called rollback. – ShaWiz May 7 '14 at 11:22
  • @ShadowWizard: And editing the last (aka current) version in the history? That's an edit of the current post. What I'm saying is that you can still edit the current post, even though the edit button on the question is disabled, by accessing the question's history. – Cerbrus May 7 '14 at 11:23
