Sometimes I like editing questions by adding relevant tags, helping with formatting and overall question refining.
I don't usually get the edit rejected, but this time is was by Community♦, stating
"This edit conflicted with a subsequent edit".
The thing is: I refined the whole question and added relevant tags, and it seems that the asking user also edited the question after my edit suggestion, replacing 4 words of my original edit. Thus resulting the question to be using my exact edit suggestion (except those 4 words), and represented as their own edit.
Why would the system count my edit as a reject? And if so, why did the question keep all my changes?
Here is a screenshot of that action:
Edit: In contrast to the thread suggested in the comments (Why did the “community” user reject my edits?), it seems I submitted the edit first, and the user who asked and edited his question had no elevated privileges. And while that thread suggests a possible reason for that to happen, I don't seem to really understand why and how all the changes I submitted were saved and used, but edit is considered as rejected.
Although I'm perfectly okay with the question overall got improved (no matter how it was done), at the bottom line it currently consists of all my changes while it was counted as a rejected edit, and market as if the user who asked the question done all the changes.
