I'd like to know why my original edit was rejected again even though I asked to give sometime to the OA (original answerer) to review it:

Was there anything factually wrong in my edit? It added a link, formatted, and expanded a few sentences. I misunderstand why it was rejected but I further misunderstand why my request that the OA would review it itself was denied (or the OA did?, I don't know how to ensure that because I can't see edit history for this rejected edit here).


It was rejected because the users who reviewed the suggested edit thought it was changing the meaning of the answer.

Effectively, the suggested edit added that Drush 9 is Composer-centralized, while it's simply suggested not to install Drush 9 globally (which is possible also with Composer).
It also introduce a grammar error, in the following sentence. (Emphasis on the wrongly changed part is mine.)

A composer based Drupal project is installed by composer create-project drupal-composer/drupal-project includes Drush 9 locally by default and this is the only recommend way to use Drush 9.

The correct sentence is the original one.

A composer based Drupal installed by composer create-project drupal-composer/drupal-project includes Drush 9 locally by default and this is the only recommend way to use Drush 9, see https://github.com/drupal-composer/drupal-project.

Inlining a link, or editing it to show its title is fine; rewriting a sentence to make it clearer is fine, but adding a sentence the poster didn't put (and containing a not correct assertion) isn't fine.

  • I thank you dearly kiamlauluno. I didn't even notice the code difference (I don't know why it was omitted). I didn't know there is such a recommendation to install Drush locally and not globally (at once for all projects, agjjhh I hate this composer terminology) and of course I don't go against that. Again I thank you for noting the difference. If the answer is changed to the version you displayed, is that okay to changing it fully, based on the rest I suggested? – user16289 Oct 14 '18 at 17:18
  • As long as you don't add something the OP didn't say, or remove something the OP did say, the suggested edit should be fine. – kiamlaluno Oct 14 '18 at 17:26
