I am an extended confirmed user editor on Wikipedia. On Michael Rosen, which is pending changes protected, my 8 Feb edit https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Michael_Rosen&type=revision&diff=1005571365&oldid=1005008162 was automatically accepted, but those of 19 Feb were not e.g. (the first one) https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Michael_Rosen&type=revision&diff=1007735566&oldid=1007730996. The edit history shows the issue more clearly: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Michael_Rosen&action=history
I have not had this problem before.
The issue is the same for all pending changes protected articles which I have subsequently edited e.g.
I can continue to edit articles which are not pending change protected as before, included those with extended protection and extended confirmed protection.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
- Find an article with pending changes protection ([[Category:Wikipedia_pending_changes_protected_pages]])
- Click on Edit
- Change something
- Click on Submit changes
The edit appears in the edit history as a pending edit with the notice “pending review”. The edit is not made to the article until it is accepted by a pending changes reviewer.
The edit is automatically accepted.
I use Microsoft Windows and Chrome on a desktop. The issue is the same on Firefox.
