I saw this and thought to edit it by adding a blockquote, do some MathJax formatting and editing tags. And so I devoted 7 minutes (on a mobile device), trying to make StackExchange a better place. And just when I submitted my edit, suddenly out of nowhere, @BenCrowell just did this edit (yeah I know his rep is >2000 so his edits are applied immediately...). Now there is nothing wrong with him doing that edit.
Here's where the wrong stuff starts... My edit (as you would already have seen, hopefully) was straightaway rejected. You can even see the time... It is like damn close. This made me quite angry (you would have already felt the anger). And yes this has demotivated me from editing more than anything else. I devote my time, on an uncomfortable mobile device, at the time when I was supposed to be having a good sleep, to make a community better, the @Community♦ rejects it. This has not been the first time that a subsequent edit just ruined my efforts, but this time the timing of the events are just too frustrating for anyone.
Can't we stop rejecting the suggested edits just because someone else has edited the post after the edit was suggested?
I know this is sounding like a rant and, to be honest, I am willfully ranting because I am really disappointed right now. Some of the things in my post may be impulsive. And I know that I have written a lot of irrelevant stuff here but that's just to show you the frustration. I know this post will surely be closed either as a duplicate or maybe as off-topic(BTW do we have that off-topic reason on Meta?). I know, I know... This isn't a really big deal. I should take it lightly, but I am sorry, it's worthy enough to be given attention and changed. Edit this post. It is my worst one. :(
In all my sanity, I request you: PLEASE take some action!!
This question is not a request to accept my edit. This question was written with a greater motive. I wanted the system to change. Also I am not demanding any radical changes. So I request everyone who sees this question to not just point out mistakes in my edit and comment about my slow editing skills. I think we all should constructively try to either implement a solution or search a solution (if we don't have one yet). The change demanded here, if implemented, will have broad consequences. If you think this is trivial, then what changes do you expect in an established community? Of course, SE community already has the essential good things. It is only this kind of trivial stuff which needs attention. And working on these trivial but common stuff will make SE even better.
