How do suggested edits work?

While trying to edit some posts at Stack Overflow, not all of my suggested edits were approved. After a while, my edit privilege is gone.

Is that because I have a large number of rejected edits?

A convenient place to say: Please stop editing in italics and bold words to questions. You're not improving anything, you're just visually cluttering the posts you're editing. On the off chance that your edit is approved, it'll probably just be reverted by somebody else. –  meagar Jan 10 '12 at 4:32
    
Please also review the markdown faq, you should never have to manually edit insert <br> tags, or most any real html tag for that matter. –  meagar Jan 10 '12 at 4:35

Yes, if significant amount of your suggested edits have been rejected, you won't be able to suggest edits for a while.

It is also possible that the suggested edit queue is full, thereby suppressing the edit link.

And how long is that "while" ? –  Burimi Jan 9 '12 at 8:15
