I edited this answer: https://superuser.com/a/435420/135459 but didn't realize I was logged out. Can / should I do anything to mark that edit as mine? Since it was entered as an unregistered user, it's under review at the moment.

  • Just wait for it to be approved (or rejected) – DavidPostill Jul 28 '17 at 14:52
  • I realized after a moment that it would have been under review anyway because I only have 124 rep on this site right now. My actual concern, though, isn't about it getting reviewed, but rather being blamed/credited for the edit. – TecBrat Jul 28 '17 at 15:02
  • I wouldn't worry about it for just one edit :) – DavidPostill Jul 28 '17 at 15:03
  • Ok. Thanks for the reply. I'll let it go. – TecBrat Jul 28 '17 at 15:04
  • Don't worry about getting credit for the edit wasn't approved. – Ramhound Jul 28 '17 at 22:44
  • Are the contents of that declined edit available to those with more reputation or to a moderator? – TecBrat Jul 28 '17 at 23:42
  • Unless you have a link to the edit proposal in the queue, no, there isn't. Does it matter though? – Ramhound Jul 29 '17 at 0:07
  • I think it was a good edit, turning a link-only answer into a real answer and I'd like to ask another meta question "Why was my edit declined?", but having the original text would be helpful in writing such a question. – TecBrat Jul 29 '17 at 0:11

    @TecBrat Mods can certainly see the declined edit. Here is a link. superuser.com/review/suggested-edits/677760 – DavidPostill Jul 29 '17 at 9:28

    Given the OP hasn't been around for 5 years and the edit appears to reasonably fix a link only answer I have approved the edit. – DavidPostill Jul 29 '17 at 9:33
  • @TecBrat I can tell you the reason it was declined multiple people thought you were changing what the author of the answer said. – Ramhound Jul 29 '17 at 16:16

    It might have helped if you had made it clear that the text you were adding to the answer came from the link that was already in the answer. But I suspect that some people are biased against anonymous edits, and hold them to a higher level of scrutiny. – Scott Aug 8 '17 at 0:58
