I just got an edit rejected during review, with the reason:
This edit conflicted with a subsequent edit.
Looking at the subsequent conflicting review, it's not that different from mine.
I am just wondering how can this be? I have encountered situations where I cannot edit because another edit is underway, or when the question is changed during my revision.
In general, how are the revisions prioritized? Is it based on time (in which case this rejection reason makes no sense), or reputation, or number of words changed, or some other status/criteria?
Also, this rejection is by "community". Does that mean this is from an automatic mechanism and not a human judgement? Is there a way to avoid spending time on such rejected edits?
