I suggested an edit to a question:


The edit was rejected by Community ♦. I don't really mind it being rejected, it wasn't a superb edit, but I think it did improve the quality of the question. My question about this is that the edit I made was later done by another user, and his edit wasn't rejected (https://salesforce.stackexchange.com/posts/11720/revisions). I was wondering why his edit wasn't rejected and mine was (even though mine was actually a bit better).

The post's author was in the process of editing his post when you submitted your edit. He then submitted his edit, which - since he has full editing rights to the post - was given precedence over your (as-yet unapproved) suggested edit. This caused your edit to be rejected by the system itself - no actual human ever reviewed it.

Techtrekker has enough reputation that his/her edits do not need approval. I can't speak as to why yours was rejected, though.
