From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An edit conflict is when someone saves a page but newer information has been saved before the person that lost the conflict saves. Example:
- Bob clicks on change
- Alice clicks on change
- Bob types.
- Alice types.
- Alice clicks on save.
- Bob still types then clicks on save.
- Alice wins the conflict
- Bob loses and has to type the info again (or Alice has already typed what Bob was going to)
