Reviewing this (non wiki) suggested edit on Stack Apps, I hit Improve Edit and further updated the post.

Now the suggested edit is "orphaned". It shows in the post history:

post history

but not in the review history: (History for all users is shown. You need 10K to see it using the link.)

review history

And the suggested edit record shows just the Community User:

bad suggested edit record

when it should also show the reviewing user. For example:

good suggested edit record

So, how did this suggested edit get orphaned?
I've seen this a few times now over the years.

PS: If it's not obvious, I am user Brock Adams on Stack Apps.

  • Some race condition similar to this one?

  • @rene, if I read that correctly, then multiple SE's should show in the user activity. In this case, they do not. Also, at least one of those probably shows in the Review history, although I don't have the rep to verify that there. Jan 4, 2019 at 20:20

    We can leave this one for Shog9 to triage as well. He now knows that code path better then anyone else now, whether he likes it or not ...

    Firelord (a mod on Android.se) confirms that in that other case, all three suggested edits do show in the Review history. So that linked bug seems to be a different beastie. Jan 4, 2019 at 20:57

    I think he is happy to know we have his work laid out for the weekend ...

  • @Scott, that looks like the same problem, thanks. So I closed as dupe. But I don't think that current answer applies to my case at all and it's been almost 3 years and hasn't been solved (or even addressed by SE). Jan 5, 2019 at 5:24
  • (1) Yeah, as I commented on my post, it’s frustrating that, after almost three years, it hasn’t even been given a “[status_XXXXXX]” tag.  Do you (as a high-rep user, and a moderator) have enough clout to rattle some cages and remind people that this is an open problem?  (2) Funny thing: it looks like you wrote the above comment a few (7) seconds before you closed your question.  Of course, closing a question deletes all the “Possible duplicate” comments.  But, even though I still had a comment on your question at the time, I didn’t get notified when you pinged me.  I just happened to check in.

  • Donno what you're talking about, that review task looks just fine to me... (I've found the cause of the issue here, will write it up on the dup I guess)
