This discussion is about why a seemingly valid edit was rolled back.
Recently I asked a question that was off-topic due to the cabling being in a residential location rather than a business location.
The question was placed on hold. The description quite clearly asked me to reword the question to be on topic:
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit your question ...
I followed the request and reworded the question to fit the rules in the help center. The question, as reworded, was now presumably on topic.
The moderator who asked me to reword the question then rolled the edit back and made the question off topic again. I undid that and he redid it.
My question is: Why did a moderator ask me to reword the question to be on topic, then rollback the edits that were asked for? I am wholly confused about the intention. The "on hold" system was applied and used effectively.
Please note that this post primarily concerns the action of edits being rolled back. Even if the edits did not put the question on topic, were they invalid edits? Why were they rolled back (twice)?
