What are possible causes for the unavailability of suggested edits (for 10k+ users)?

  • Weird. I can see the page as a mod, but not if I'm not logged in. Never seen this happen before.

  • @nhinkle Anything interesting about that edit or the edited question/answer? Maybe deleted?

  • Nothing notable that I could tell. I'm looking into it.

  • Sorry - the flags were unrelated on a different post with a similar number.

  • It's worth noting that the original question was deleted. I'm not sure why the suggested edit wouldn't show up though if you have 10k.

  • @nhinkle If I had to guess I'd say to prevent enumeration. I think this is the reason they don't appear in search results either, and the badges related to deleted posts don't list the posts for which they were awarded either. Still, a canonical answer would be nice.

  • @random Thanks for the link. Do you know whether this is the only possible cause for suggested edits to be unavailable?

  • A suggested edit link attached to a deleted post is currently the only reason this happens.

Currently, the only reasons why a direct link to a suggested edit is not available are:

  1. The post it's attached to has been deleted
  2. The suggested edit has yet to take place.

In your case, it's the former.
