I recently suggested edits to the answer to this question Declination Diagram. (They were suggested because I don't have enough reputation to make them stick.)
Like many Q&A, there were some subtle issues involved and I thought I could clarify some things in the answer by adding/deleting a word or two, and by adding emphasis here or there -- no change in meaning, just a small improvement. Of course, that was my opinion but not the reviewer's -- the suggestions weren't applied.
Is there any way to see what happened? Months ago, my suggested edit to an answer on StackOverflow was rejected as insignificant (I only corrected a link!) but at least I was informed of what happened (votes for/against and reason).
I don't wish to complain about that individual incident -- I'd like to understand the process of reviewing suggested edits.
Thanks to whuber's comment, I learned how to investigate the status of suggested edits, and posted my findings as an answer, even though it only touched on the issue.
Now there's been a second incident -- suggested edits to the question https://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/81754/any-update-on-having-a-similar-how-smooth-line-tool-from-arcgis-in-postgis that were rejected -- I've decided to "refresh" my question about the edit review process.
My suggestion had one approval and one rejection. (The rejection was from the OP -- I don't know if that means anything.) This time I feel stronger that it was a useful edit but I don't even know who can even review the suggestion or for how long the process can/must continue.
So my question is How does the whole suggested edits review process work? or Where is it explained?
