# How can I correct my review of a tag-edit?

I accidentally approved a tag edit which I meant to reject? (sorry)

Is there a way for me to undo that approval and reject it? Or at least remove my approval? The edit was a copy of a piece of a manufacturers marketing 'blurb', and IMHO not helpful.

I've dug around the help centre, and my profile, but I can't see a way to remove my approval.

I have looked at the tag and it is in 'edit pending" state, and has one approval (mine :-( and one rejection. It really should be two rejections.

• If you explain which tag, maybe a mod can help. Dec 25 '15 at 22:45
• @OlinLathrop - Thank you for the comment. I thought about doing that when I asked the question. However I am slightly nervous about mentioning the tag as I believe the person was a regular user, and they might take offence, and I assume others could figure out who edited the tag, and maybe even disadvantage them. I'd prefer to declare that I am a bit of a twit, rather than cause offence to others. Dec 25 '15 at 22:57
• That's just plain silly. Putting how someone might feel ahead of the site is bad practice. If what they did was reasonable, then they won't be insulted. If they in fact did something stupid, then they have to live getting called on it. We are here to talk about electrical engineering, not to pander to the assumed fragilities of individual users.

• @OlinLathrop - I live in the real world, and it is mostly PC. I believe you have complained about various down-voting behaviours, and proposing means to change those behaviours. Yet the community decided to not change. So I don't think your relationship with the 'real world' is demonstrably better than mine. People are from different cultures and backgrounds. Some of us try to be polite, some of us might think that is a waste of effort. I don't. Further, I don't appreciate you asserting your view of moral, rational, justifiable, or 'correct' on me. Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year. Dec 26 '15 at 12:43
• In the future, if the edit is approved because of a fat finger mistake, just roll it back, with an appropriate edit note like Bad edit because of X and Y. If it gets re-edited, then flag it for a moderator to decide. Dec 27 '15 at 0:16
• @Passerby - Thank you for the advice. I don't have the rep to use tag editing directly. So, is 'roll it back' functionality available when the tag is no longer in 'edit pending'? Or do you mean that I need to manually edit the tag back to its previous text? Dec 27 '15 at 15:20
• Roll back is in the edit history. You do need to wait until its no longer edit pending. It does count as a manual edit, so if you lack the rep it will into the edit review queue. Dec 27 '15 at 21:03
• @Passerby - Thanks again. I wish you a Happy New Year! Dec 28 '15 at 1:15
