Welcome to Codidact Meta!

Codidact Meta is the meta-discussion site for the Codidact community network and the Codidact software. Whether you have bug reports or feature requests, support questions or rule discussions that touch the whole network – this is the site for you.

The site claims I made edits to post while I was offline

The site claims I edited this post 6 hours ago:

https://electrical.codidact.com/questions/276256

6 hours ago I was very much asleep since that's around 4am here. I don't remember editing this post at all, but maybe I did long time ago and it didn't get approved until now?

At any rate it's rather creepy that the site claims I was active when I wasn't. Makes me think my account has been hacked. It should show the date and time when the edit was proposed.

Additionally, the post edit history is completely useless since it doesn't show what was changed.

The timestamp for edits is when the post is changed. Notably, that means that the time does not correspond to the time when an edit was suggested.

This is your edit suggestion, which was approved while you were asleep: https://electrical.codidact.com/posts/suggested-edit/11

The site should probably distinguish between "edited" (by direct edit) and "edited" (by having a suggested edit approved), but right now it doesn't and this sort of thing is the result.
