I'm mainly post to the Stack Overflow meta. As a result, I don't have enough rep to actually post a comment in this meta and I am not a new user.
There was a post I added a significant improvement to, a semi-automated powershell script for performing the same tasks under Windows 7.
This is regarding this thread.
The edit included a link to the public pastebin, formatting showing a powershell script, and a standard disclaimer regarding running powershell scripts you don't understand it.
The script itself was heavily commented to avoid any confusion or appearance of obfuscation.
I was told it would be peer reviewed, and wouldn't post until that had completed but I would still see the edit while logged in. The edit has, since then, disappeared completely. This was several days ago, I noticed this morning the question had been updated but my additions are completely missing.
As far as I can tell, there is no way of contacting the answer poster privately regarding the edit to discover what went wrong (no private messaging), and the meta restriction prevents me from making a comment in the thread (even though I have more than enough rating to post on StackOverflow.
The manual procedure described in the thread is a lengthy process. I estimate a little bit over 40 minutes of work for a sysadmin, maybe as much as 1h 20m for a superuser. The same task when run as a semi-automated script would take no longer than 10-20 minutes mostly unattended (a significant time savings).
What is the best way to go about resolving this, and getting the changes posted to save everyone time and headache?
