I think it's bit of difficult for me to explain this scenario.

I've edited this Question. At the same time Molot done same changes to that post. But unfortunately (by mistake) he missed a tag in coding. Again I did correction but my suggested Edit got rejected by Clive (Of course it seems like what he said in his suggested edit comment ;))

So what can I do in this scenario. I left comment on this Question to Molot. Is that valid behavior?

Or can I edit the same question and explain the scenario in Edit Summary?

Please suggest me the best behavior?

    What do you mean by "he missed a tag in coding"? Do you mean the opening <?php tag that you were editing in? If so, that's why I rejected your edit as invalid - we don't need to add <?php` tags to code that's obviously PHP...

  • Yeah, it's not necessary so removing it was the right thing to do

  • @Clive oh!! OK Thanks Clive. Infact I did the same changes which Molot done, but my edit got overwrite on second time. so my edit seems minor. Commented Apr 23, 2014 at 8:37
  • Don't worry about it, I've seen the edits you're making in general, and you're doing the right thing. I don't see many of them being rejected; this one was admittedly quite pedantic, but that's how it goes sometimes :)

To answer your question directly:

When a user edits a question/answer, they become fair-game to receive notifications for comments directed at them on that post.

So if user joebloggs was to edit a question, and you think there was an error, just leave a comment:

@joebloggs I think you've made a mistake with foo/bar in your last edit, could you check please?
