Edit of question:

Need help implementing DCT Type 4 algorithm

I edited the question, and then noticed that I was presented with the "your edit will be placed in a review queue" form that low-rep users are greeted with.

That's kind of confusing, considering my 27 dBRep status.

What's more confusing: I could vote on my own edit, and it now only needs another vote to be approved.

Might be related: Once in a while (every week or so), I can't post a comment. The website then shows me red box saying that unregistered users can comment, and I have to reload the page on which I want to comment to make things work.

EDIT: Happened again, this time on my own answer, a couple minutes after posting it (when I decided I want to add something to it):


cancelling and clicking edit again didn't help, reloading the page does.

Are you certain that you were logged in, etc? By the look of it, this edit was proposed by an anonymous user. There are no other edits/actions made with respect to that question.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, I'm certain. Especially since, without reloading the page, I could then click on the "edit (1)" link below the question, and approve my own edit... $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 3, 2017 at 10:17
  • $\begingroup$ Interesting. There is no trace of other edits at all. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ heh. So, what do we do now? I just realized that occasionally, I can't post comments, while I'm logged in, with an error message that "you have to be logged in to post comments" or so. Editing that into my Q. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 3, 2017 at 10:20
  • $\begingroup$ I did cross check that IP if it was ever used by you, and indeed it was. This could mean that you are having some issues with your browser, etc. I will ask "techy guys" to have a look into that. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ thanks! If it helps, the commenting problem also happens on other SE sites $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 3, 2017 at 10:25
  • $\begingroup$ Just happened again on ham.SE, this time I tried reloading the question page and re-did my edit, which worked. Browser has been sending the same cookies everytime, says firefox web dev tools $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 3, 2017 at 10:57
  • $\begingroup$ Happened again! This time with screenshot; see Q :) $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 4, 2017 at 18:03
