Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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 was reviewing a edit from a 600 rep user, and found it good to approve.
However when I approved it I got the message "This suggestion still needs 1 approval vote from other reviewers" while I have 3700 rep and thus could edit the question myself and so renders the need for one more approval useless.
To me this seems like a bug?

This behavior is intentional. See the special Stack Overflow rules in How do suggested edits work?.

Seems like a strange design choice, I feel they should take into account the rep of the user that approves the edit. – Stormenet Sep 20 '11 at 10:44
