I just suggested an edit to the question Extracting text using sed does not work as expected. After a few minutes I checked back and found that an edit had been committed to the question. It was my edit, with a few cosmetic/stylistic changes. (For example, I had used “…” quotes around strings that were also in back-ticks; OK, I accept that that’s non-standard. And indentation and a blockquote that I had added were gone.) But my name was nowhere to be seen, and I didn’t get my two points of reputation. Was this a correct edit review?
Look at the differences between your suggestion and the improvement:
- Removed an excessive amount of whitespace before the input/output/commands
- Made the commands blocks instead of inline formatting, which they should be as they're on their own line.
- Removed the note from a quote block, as it doesn't really belong in one.
This ends up correcting about half of your changes. I would probably have left your edit marked helpful as I'm generous with such things, but I understand why the rejector rejected it.
