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

As Shadow Wizard pointed out on his answer to another question, it seems like a <2k rep user was able to improve a suggested edit by simply retaging the question. The suggested edit shows up as accepted by Community and has the same timestamp as the retag.

As we all know, only people with edit privileges should be allowed to approve/improve/reject suggested edits...but it seems like retags from <2k rep users do improve suggested edits.

Note that OP can also "approve" suggested edit without knowing about it. example (see second and third revisions) – Shadow Wizard Jan 9 '12 at 12:46

Yes, there were a few little glitches there.

  1. If you clicked "retag" and in the mean time somebody already submitted a suggested edit, we showed you a 404. (changed it to display a simple message)

  2. If you got to the retag screen, then someone submitted an edit and finally you did your retag, you would push the edit through. (fixed)
