Somewhat similar to Show other users' votes in suggested edit review, but rather more limited: when Rejecting an edit, not only the count of custom rejection reasons but the actual text of the reasons should be shown, IMO. Just now I wrongly accepted a suggested edit on SO that tidied some code in a trivially correct and substantially superior way because it looked perfectly legitimate and I couldn't understand why anyone would bother with a custom rejection reason. As it turned out, it was code in a question, of course.

In this case, the rejection reason correctly identified the problem, and had I seen it, I would have been reminded of that aspect I had neglected to check.

  • Can you post a link to the edit you think you incorrectly accepted? The reject reason from other people should be irrelevant to your evaluation - they may have it totally wrong. – slugster May 18 '15 at 4:14
  • @slugster: Sure, but I'm already used to dealing with potentially unreliable previous review opinions anyway, since reject reason counts are already shown, and auto-comments from LQRQ are too. (And I'm on record as detesting the abominable accuracy of the latter.) I think it's fairly plain that the other reviewer was perfectly correct. – Nathan Tuggy May 18 '15 at 4:36
