Yes, it is counted as a rejected edit. A few rejects are okay, they happen.


Mostly you will get that message when your suggestion failed to improve a severe issue or several small ones so that a reviewer decided to start the whole edit afresh. That is the reason why this reject counts.

Make sure to review the edit history of the post. In the comment you will likely find an explanation about what was missing.
