I edited the Tag Wiki to insert some info about InDesign. Not having edit privileges in the Tag Wiki, I got the expected message that the edit would have to be approved. I was surprised, then, when the site popped up an "Approve Tag Wiki Edit" request, and it turned out to be the edit I'd just done.

I didn't click the approval button, since that just didn't seem like the thing to do, so I don't know if the site logic would have blocked it. But it shouldn't have shown up in the first place, right? Or am I missing something?


You can suggest edits, and approve them, but not your own. See this question on MSO.
