Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I have found that the suggested edits by low rep users (500 or less), generally do not follow the StackOverflow guidelines:

I am proposing that the suggested edits by low rep users be made to stand out on the Review page so that approvers can zero in on and tackle these suggested edits early on.

I don't see how this would help at all. You should be looking at all of them carefully before voting, and I don't see how you'd read one differently just because it's statistically more likely to be a bad edit.

Why would you want to "tackle them early on?" It's not like the post shows the edit until it's rejected, there isn't any time pressure to reject a bad edit. If anything, the ones more likely to be improvements should be handled first, as a good edit getting approved is good for the site.

Can a mod / team member tell us if there is a significant difference in the accepted to rejected ratio for edits by anonymous, 1 rep, 2-500, and 501-1999 rep users? It seems like this could be definitively rejected if there isn't a significant gulf.
