I like the addition of the "Improve" button in the review edits page. However, sometimes I only think of improving a post after choosing to accept/reject. Currently there is no way to do this other than waiting for the edit to be accepted/rejected and when there are <5 edits in the queue this can take a while.

Is there a workaround for this, or can this be added?

  • Yes, this is a problem. Another example: I voted to reject a trivial edit, here. Later I wanted to edit the question to remove an inappropriate tag (elisp). I fell into the same gotcha. Had I noticed the tag when I reviewed the edit, I would have removed it then. Too late. Now I'll forget to come back after the review is ended and remove the tag...

You can still edit by visiting the edit link manually: http://stackoverflow.com/posts/12345/edit. As I write, this starts from the suggested version, but will merge the suggestion with your edit, reject the suggestion and not credit the suggester. Use with care.

To merge the suggestion with your edit while accepting the suggestion, append ?improve=true as in http://stackoverflow.com/posts/12345/edit?improve=true.


Right now this is .

If it is a worthwhile post, I am sure it will be voted upon pretty fast, otherwise, bring it up in SE chat.
