As I just found out, multiple people can edit a question at the same time.
I happened to be the one to submit last. The red notification that told me that I cannot submit that edit was really pretty, but I have to wonder why the system allows many parallel edits if it's not capable of merging the results. Why does it bite more off than it can chew?
I don't feel like wasting more time today trying to submit edits.
- I have less than 2000 reputation.
- I click on "edit" below whatever I want to edit in order to (try to) edit it. I apply changes to the text.
- I hit the submit button, which is refused, because there's another edit waiting to be reviewed.
