When going to make a new edit, it nicely warns you that your last edit was rejected, however if your last edit was rejected because This edit conflicted with a subsequent edit, why does it show this message? There's usually not much you can do to avoid that.

Your last edit was rejected warning The link: review the reasons before rejecting it

  • This question was already asked on MSO. Please check your other edits and see if any were rejected by reviewers.

  • @Glorfindel My most recent edits not including the conflicting one have succeeded. I've failed two edits total for reasons that are not conflicting

  • The question linked to by Laurel seems to indicate it isn't. It might be that the rejected edit was on a post which is now deleted, but that's hard to tell without dev tools. Which site was this on?

  • Hmm... maybe those kind of rejected edits aren't shown on your profile on purpose.

  • @Ano but do they count for the warning?

    @Glorfindel Yes, all rejected edits do. Also, this was actually supposedly "fixed" very recently, but I can't find the post saying so. Mar 14 '18 at 21:45

    @benisuǝqbackwards: That was [status-completed] long before this was asked, and there's no obvious explanation that its completion would make this [status-bydesign] either, so I don't think they can be dupes. Feb 2 '19 at 18:23
