Sometimes when I look at my suggested edits I see some which have been rejected by Community even when accepted by other users. How can this be? I thought Community was just a background, automated process. Does it really have veto over suggested edits?

  • Hovering over "Community" in the "marked as duplicate" box will also tell you why Community can close a question :-) May 19, 2016 at 15:11

This happens when a reviewer chooses "Reject & Edit", or "Improve Edit".
Then Community is credited with the binding Reject or Approve vote, and the reviewer's edit becomes the new edit.
