"Approved with 2 rejection votes" can have a 'restricted mode'. Setting such a mode restricts which edits get reported, based on their rejection reasons: if a specific rejection reason is excluded, edits where both rejections have that reason won't be reported in chat. So if the reason of one of the votes is excluded but the other one isn't, it will still get reported in chat.

How is a restricted mode constructed?

A restricted mode is the base-10 representation of a binary number with 6 digits. Each digit indicates whether the corresponding rejection reason has to be included for chat reports (1) or excluded (0).

Each digit corresponds with a rejection reason, in this order:

  1. "This edit defaces the post in order to promote a product or service, or is deliberately destructive."
  2. "This edit does not make the post even a little bit easier to read, easier to find, more accurate or more accessible. Changes are either completely superfluous or actively harm readability."
  3. "This edit introduces tags that do not help to define the topic of the question. Tags should help to describe what the question is about, not just what it contains."
  4. "This edit deviates from the original intent of the post. Even edits that must make drastic changes should strive to preserve the goals of the post's owner."
  5. "This edit was intended to address the author of the post and makes no sense as an edit. It should have been written as a comment or an answer."
  6. A custom reason.

For example: mode 47 (101111) includes all reasons except the 'no improvement whatsoever' one, so approved edits with 2 'no improvement whatsoever' votes won't be reported to chat.
