"https://drupal.stackexchange.com/questions/76533/getting-crazy-for-edi-tpl" i made an edit to this post, it show my name but not my edit and also not get any reputation. Looks like bug in suggested edit.

  • To support the "edit clash" suggestion made here, the list of your suggested edit doesn't list the suggested edit you made for that post. That means that for the system, yours was just an edit to change the tags. – kiamlaluno Jun 17 '13 at 15:21

I'm pretty sure this isn't a bug - the only change you made was to add the tag. That change is currently showing so the edit went through fine.

As I understand it, once you have 500 reputation points, edits that consist of only re-tagging a post don't go into a review queue. So there's no reputation 'reward' for their acceptance.


Looks like there was a clash with another edit at the same time. That would probably explain why your more substantial edit got lost.

  • hmmm i don't have any proof to show my edit made to that post and even it not shown in that suggested edit drupal.stackexchange.com/posts/76533/revisions – Bala Jun 17 '13 at 12:17
  • There's nothing under the revision history except for the tag change. Are you absolutely positive you submitted more changes than that? Any chance you just made a mistake and thought you'd altered more than the tags but hadn't? Importantly - can you reproduce it again? If so we can escalate this to the main meta site. If not I fear it will be too localised an incident to investigate. I haven't seen any similar reports on meta.so or anything – Clive Jun 17 '13 at 12:21
  • Yes i made more changes to that post and also i can reproduce it. – Bala Jun 17 '13 at 12:26
  • OK, could you put the exact steps to reproduce the bug into the question please? Be as detailed as possible so the devs have a chance to reproduce it too – Clive Jun 17 '13 at 12:28
  • Clive, @Bala I'm pretty sure I reviewed edit by Bala, one that was more than just retag. Actually, they was damn similar to changes by develkar in edit #2. – Mołot Jun 17 '13 at 12:37
  • i tried but no luck, because at that time of edit @develkar also made the changes. see the edited time for both edits – Bala Jun 17 '13 at 12:39
  • Yeah they were about a minute apart. You mentioned you could reproduce it, could you edit the question and add the steps to do so in? Without that the devs aren't likely to look into it :) – Clive Jun 17 '13 at 12:41
  • Ok, i will edit the question. but what do you mean about the steps – Bala Jun 17 '13 at 12:46

    As I see it (but we would need perfect timing to test it): If 2 people start to edit at about the same time, and >2k person saves after <2k one, when the <2k one is not yet accepted, it gets discarded. We would need a question to test it on. – Mołot Jun 17 '13 at 12:47

    @Mołot good catch. Bala, this is the expected behaviour: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/118359/…. Don't worry about updating the question I think this is simply a race condition that another editor 'won' on this occasion – Clive Jun 17 '13 at 12:50
  • @Mołot you are the only man to prove my situation, great thanks – Bala Jun 17 '13 at 12:51
  • Clive, update your answer maybe, then? @Bala sorry to hear rep missed you. You'll earn plenty soon, I'm sure. This is one of the technical limitations in Internet systems overall, that's cheaper to live with than to fight in non-critical systems like here. – Mołot Jun 17 '13 at 12:55
