  • Are suggested edit outcome pages permanent? Sometimes I leave a link to a rejected suggested edit in a comment if it provides potentially useful information, and I don't want it to rot.

  • @Vi. They are preserved indefinitely -- or rather, the database information from which those pages are built is preserved. For example, the edit linked in the screenshot is here. (The URL changed with the introduction of other Review queues, but it redirects).
