I put some work into improving a bunch of tag wiki excerpts. Many of the were approved. But, today, I went to add something to distinguish between and (the former for images of the sun or where the sun is directly involved), and got a harsh white page with

Too many of your edits were rejected, try again in 7 days.

Which kind of sucks in several ways. First, I don't think any of my edits were awful, although I won't claim any sort of perfection. Mostly they were on tags which did not actually have a wiki before — and a whole bunch of them were accepted. And second, blocked for 7 days? Harsh.

I'm not just complaining that I got knocked down, here — I'd like to see a list of rejected edits, so I can fix whatever was wrong.

  • \$\begingroup\$ yes but still the answer doesn't say how to check your tag-wiki edits, need to post a new question perhaps? \$\endgroup\$

The UI is kind of sucky, but you can see your stats on each of your edits.


look at the bottom.

It seems 5 of your suggested edits were rejected, you can see who rejected them in the list.

Personally I do not find anything very wrong with your edits, and am not against raising thresholds. The reason we are so harsh is that we need to defend our queue from flooding.

If you would like the thresholds changed somehow, please raise an item on meta.stackoverflow.com cause it would be a global change.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks. Unfortunately, the UI only shows the last handful of my suggested edits. I'll raise something on meta-stackoverflow. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @mattdm all are browsable try clicking on the ones at the bottom of the list ... the UI is kind of crappy ... I really need to fix it. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Mar 29, 2011 at 13:04
  • \$\begingroup\$ Oh, I get it. That really is crappy. :) \$\endgroup\$
