Review edits have the option to force edit, which will edit the original post, as opposed to improve which will edit the suggested edit.

How did you create such a nice animated gif? I tried to used ffmpeg, but the output was horrible... – Paul Sweatte Feb 20 '14 at 23:53
@PaulSweatte LICEcap with a framerate of 30. For a small demonstration, the filesize is usually small ~200-300kb. – Dave Chen Feb 21 '14 at 5:04
LICEcap, never heard of it until now. It generates animated gifs by default, so no conversion needed. Thanks! – Paul Sweatte Feb 24 '14 at 18:04
