I just encountered a suggested edit on a post that is possibly spam. Given its score, it's likely to have a couple of pending spam flags already. What is interesting, and a possible , is that the options 'Improve edit' and 'Reject and edit' have been disabled. Normally, this only happens when reviewing suggested edits to tag wikis/excerpts (if you have the reputation to review them but not the reputation to singlehandedly edit them). What's going on here?

Meanwhile, while posting this, the answer has been deleted, but I'm sure (up to caching) that I saw this while I could still see the answer on the Q&A page. And the suggested edit is still pending, perhaps waiting for the review task to be invalidated.

The fact that @Xnero could not reproduce it, and I can't reproduce it on the suggested edit mentioned by @Luuklag seems to suggest that this happens for all suggested edits on deleted posts if you don't have the privilege to view deleted posts (10k on most sites). I'm still unsure if this is ...

  • No repro on the same edit.

    The Improve/Reject & Edit options also go away for me on deleted posts. Maybe that’s what happened here if it was deleted while you were reviewing it.

  • I have the same issue on this review: stackoverflow.com/review/suggested-edits/29203647 Screenshot: i.stack.imgur.com/6Rt7q.png That might be because it is a tag only edit?

    @Luuklag thanks, I can't reproduce on that edit but I do have 10k+ on SO. Xnero has 10k+ on Travel.SE and I don't, so that definitely seems to make a difference.

    @Luuklag :) moderators are supposed not to use their powers on their own posts (except for blatantly obvious cases). I'm sure not many people will mind if I make an exception here, but I don't.

    I know, hence the wink eyed emoticon.
