This is the review record of your rejected edit.
I think the reasons of the rejections were these:
- Some of the reviewers represent more the negative voters of the site (gives more down as up, prefer to vote to close, rejecting edit suggestions and so on). You had bad luck in this sense.
- You wanted to edit the post of a high-rep user. Such edit suggestions are typically not very HQ.
- Being a <2k user, you can only initiate revisions if they change at least 6 characters. You circumvented this rule by inserting 6 periods to the end of the text.
However, the problem what you fixed was a real and very obvious one.
If I had reviewed your suggestion, I had probably clicked "Improve edit", and I had removed your added points at the end. In my opinion, it had been the correct thing to do, but also the reviewers are human and sometimes they have to handle a large mass of crap.
Writing a comment to the post, as AFT suggests, could work, but you have no way to know, when will anybody see it ever. Furthermore, you lose the +2 reward with it, which is your deserved reward for finding a bug in a post.
You can also find other ways to reach this 6 character limit. If there is really nothing in the post what could be done better, then improve its tagging (if it is a question). If you can't do that, then this post is non-editable for you and only AFT's idea remains.
Circumventing rules by tricks is generally unwelcomed and serves as a strong argument for the reviewers to click "Reject". Btw, if you had done it at least as a HTML comment (
<!-- .... -->), then it had been at least invisible in the rendered version. However, it had been still visible in the markup and counted as circumventing rules.
In such an obvious case, I had either posted a comment, but only after I had looked for other ways to reach the 6 char limit.
The comment what you write to the edit suggestion is super-important. Write clear and convincing arguments to your edit suggestions, the reviewers see and check that!
If the case is very obvious and you are sure that the reviewers mishandled it, then it is not very bad if you suggest the same edit again (this time with more convincing comment). Last time I fixed the formatting of an SU mod on this way (rejection, accept). But never do it 3 times.
I edit the post of high-rep users very rarely, despite that now I could.
Coming to the meta is also a good idea. You might also try the site chatroom.
