Hi, @Shog9, I'm guessing this changed suggested edit record is the result of you looking into this BR?. ... Also, this bug with the API and improved SE's seems related.
 
Donno what you're talking about, that review task looks just fine to me... (I've found the cause of the issue here, will write it up on the dup I guess) — Shog9 ♦ 22 secs ago
 
@AwesomePoodles I highly doubt they're related
but... I can probably guess what's causing that API bug
 
@Shog9 Okay. The fix is the important thing. Thanks.

A: Not getting “credit” for Improve Edit

Shog9As others have surmised, there are lots of reasons why you might be able to "improve" a suggested edit without getting credit for it: You could've hit your limit for suggested edit reviews that day You could've somehow gotten review-banned after loading the review task but before submitting the...

 
@Shog9 Thanks. So if I get called away for 40 minutes before completing my improved edit; it will no longer discard it?
I guess that probably was what happened in my case(s).
 
Yup

@AwesomePoodles @Shog9 - Yes, there should be some limit to the length of time spent. If you are taking an hour you could probably write your own answer if there are to be that many changes (or that much effort). Squatting on the edit blocks it from getting through the queue in a timely manner (and the slim? chance of further edits that others are entitled to make).
 
@Rob I'm not particularly interested in trying to judge that. After all, you can always just... Open up a text editor and write as much as you want, then refresh the page, click "edit", and submit.
OTOH, that dude who was submitting reviews > 6 months after the tasks were completed... That I'm interested in judging.
 
@Rob "Squatting" is not a factor in my cases due to very low review activity. Anyway, if there is to be a time limit it (A) shouldn't orphan the edit/review and (B) should provide a warning or indication.
 
Anyway, the crux of the problem here wasn't even that there's a limit on how long you can take to review (there isn't) - it's that the operation isn't atomic: for very, very legacy reasons, editing completes the review but doesn't actually store the result - which then has to be submitted separately.
There's a reasonable argument to be made for fixing that as well, but, much bigger change.
 
Rob
3:05 AM
@Shog9 - Perhaps an 'inactivity warning' should come up at 10 minutes, something more aggressive than a "Chat ping". As long as the person is actually editing, and not gone to dinner/asleep, then I'm not against a lengthy edit. Indeed for some sites you would have to read and digest a complex paper (Physics, Chemistry, Quantum Computing, etc.) and check your facts as you go. --- Rather than "orphan/reject" it could be saved and the user kicked from the review queue and sent to the Q&A's
webpage where all their efforts would be preserved in the 'edit window'.
BUT, I'm not seeking to make a lot of work for the Devs, just wondering what is fair for everyone. We don't want a good edit tied up and everyone locked out from offering their own 2¢ and the benefit of the editor's wisdom and improvement.
As long as my 2¢ floats around somewhere, and your happy with how it is, good enough for me.
sd fp-
 
@Rob on the other hand, its not always about getting credit. As long as the edit goes through....
 
Rob
True. An improvement by an expert in the field shouldn't be rejected because they are busy saving a life or splitting a neutrino.
 
3:24 AM
An improvement by an expert... that conflicts with author's intent...
 
that can be annoying
can also be rolled back
 
3:39 AM
@Rob If memory serves, we unlock after 5 minutes - that is, we'll assign the review to someone else. At that point, whoever gets their review in first "wins".
(slightly more complex than that, but not by much)

@Tinkeringbell I didn't repeat it or even link to it.
Was just ranting. But I'm done now. :P
 
Well, then don't include hints to whatever you said in your rants... Please?

Oh, yeah no I wasn't repeating what I said. I can see how it'd look like that.

based on what the staff said in the past, they did it this way just to reduce the number of queries.
 
9:48 AM
A slimy sounding practice imho.
 
@Derpy Thanks dude!
 
basically the idea is that the extra effort to install the script should be enough to avoid to many user randomly clicking the button "just for fun"
@forest ye do realize we are all in the same boat here, right?
 
yeah
 
"don't waste my resource so that we won't have to become more rigid in rule-enforcing."
personally, I would prefer them to continue assuming good faith instead than having to switch to watch dog mode and secure everything
 
So why not just increase rate limiting?
Allow, say, 5 fetches for vote counts every 30 seconds.
 
9:52 AM
@forest probably just some historical thing that never got changed.
 
Instead of one every one second.
That's my guess too.
 
I don't exclude that originally that query did indeed need some privilege - or at least was intended to.
 
There is also one very useful extension for SE.

the "year in moderation" meta post just appeared on localized SOs...

@Derpy yeah the vote split can be calculated via timeline. That's probably how the userscript works.
 
Actually I think its just 'hidden' client side
 
Don't think so. But never bothered to really check. :)
 
Nop script call api to get up/down vote not from hidden client side. I am below 1000 on meta so I also used that.

@ShadowWizard nope, The Dog is probably right. Based pm the code, it just calls in the same api

@ShadowWizard $50 for coffee!, I hope the included messenger is female for the price. Should have stuck with Cronat Gold. I'm cheap? and get 340g of instant coffee for less than U$6 which lasts over a month (I guess, never checked); and I drink well over 10 big cups a day. 50 bucks, those capsules are an expensive way to go.
 
@Rob Hey! Perhaps Shadow likes his messengers to be male...
 
Rob
That's possible but if I was buying then I would not.
 
It's just 60 cents per cup of coffee. Still a lot cheaper than you'd pay in a lot of other places ;)
 
Rob
Yes, less expensive than a restaurant.
 
And capsules taste a lot better than instant coffee (or so I was told). Everybody has their vices ;)
 
Rob
2:38 PM
Less expensive than at the Four Seasons hotel too.
But if you are really an aficionado then you would buy beans and fresh grind.
The "No Name" instant coffee I buy tastes at least 80% as good as ground coffee (except for Maui) but costs 1/3 to 1/4 the price; and is certainly more convenient.
In keeping with your conversation of yesterday there's also Kopi Luwak, which is very expensive. (Yuk!).
