If I do an edit, and while it is pending (being approved), someone comes and does the same edit, my edit gets rejected by 'Community'. It doesn't contribute to my edit ban, but it does still contribute to my 'number of rejected edits', which is shown to all the reviewers when I edit something. This seems pointless, as in fact, my edit was good, and was, in a way, implemented. I shouldn't be penalised for it.
I don't think that this should increment the rejected edits number for no reason, even if it still doesn't award the +2 rep and increment the accepted edits number either.
