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 Feb 5 '12 at 22:32
  • @nhinkle Anything interesting about that edit or the edited question/answer? Maybe deleted? – Daniel Beck Feb 5 '12 at 22:33
  • Nothing notable that I could tell. I'm looking into it. – nhinkle Feb 5 '12 at 22:34
  • @nhinkle Please document them in some way, maybe this is a bug..? – Daniel Beck Feb 5 '12 at 22:35
  • Sorry - the flags were unrelated on a different post with a similar number. – nhinkle Feb 5 '12 at 22:36
  • 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 Feb 5 '12 at 22:40
  • @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. – Daniel Beck Feb 5 '12 at 22:50

  • @random Thanks for the link. Do you know whether this is the only possible cause for suggested edits to be unavailable? – Daniel Beck Feb 5 '12 at 23:03
  • A suggested edit link attached to a deleted post is currently the only reason this happens. – random Feb 5 '12 at 23:04
  • @random Please consider posting an answer so I can accept it. – Daniel Beck Feb 5 '12 at 23:17

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.
