Recently, I've come across a few questions which had suggested edits. I looked over the edits, and either accepted or rejected them.
Now, for some reason edits accepted or rejected by me require additional people, whereas edits made by me do not. I always found that system a bit odd, but that's not the point of this question. Just pointing it out. :)
The point is that my edits are in the queue. No problem there. Unfortunately, sometimes I will look back at the edits and want to improve them, or realize I missed something and want to reject it. I can't do any of these things. My initial decision is locked in and I can't roll it back until others weigh in.
An extreme and recent example is this question. It looks fine - if a bit simplistic. A low-rep user recently suggested an edit. To me, it looked like he was removing a space after the question mark. Picky, but nothing wrong with it. I accepted the edits.
Then I clicked the edit button again, and looked at the markup. This is what met my horrified eyes:
He is one of two supporting characters that die in my screenplay.
My wife says I shouldn’t make him black if he’s going to die.
Would it be politically incorrect?
<--WHY DON'T YOU ANSWER ANYONE'S QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR QUESTION?--> <--IT FEELS LIKE YOU ARE JUST TROLLING.-->
The additional lines were comments - I removed the
!'s to make them visible here.
I frantically tried to rollback my edits, but of course there is no way to do that. My accept vote was locked in, and sure enough, this morning, I found the edits to be approved (probably because someone else didn't look at the markup either). I have since deleted them as they are purely inflammatory commentary.
Is it possible to add in a button for us to rollback our edit decisions from the queue if we make a mistake?
