Since yesterday, I have not been able to see the edit link below questions or answers on Stack Overflow. Have I made some mistake that Stack Overflow is punishing me for?

You got some suggested edits rejected yesterday, this cause a temporary "edit ban" for 7 days.

Please see the reasons, for example here and here and try to improve your edits in the future.

One tip comes to mind: keep track of your suggestion (you can see them all here) this way you can know when some are rejected and expect a temporary ban before it happens.

Yes, I've added it to my post with link to the official post explaining it. (7 days) – Shadow Wizard Feb 27 '12 at 11:24
Thanx...You solved a complex riddle......Now i have to take precautions for such edits........ – Shahzad Imam Feb 27 '12 at 11:27
The rejected edits are not more than 2 in row, and those are the last ones. Isn't the edit ban raised if the rejected edits are X (> 2) and consecutive? – kiamlaluno Feb 27 '12 at 11:31
@kiamlaluno the exact algorithm is secret, I assume it's X rejected edits over Y period of time, rejected by Z different users. – Shadow Wizard Feb 27 '12 at 12:30
