How can I properly review a large amount of edits from one user? Clicking on 50 arrows to check that all of the edits are ok is not my idea of fun. Is there a way to pre-expand all the arrows? Can I get one page with all the edits, instead of 3?

If 5 suggestions are rejected in a row, the user will get auto banned from suggesting any further edits for 7 days afaik isn't that enough? – Shadow Wizard Apr 24 '12 at 21:27
Needs more jQuery? – Daniel Fischer Apr 24 '12 at 21:28
@ShaDowWizArd Suggested? Who said anything about suggested edits? This is a user with more than 500 rep. – Gilles Apr 24 '12 at 21:33
Oh sorry - didn't notice. – Shadow Wizard Apr 24 '12 at 21:56
Those are all tag edits. If you inspect a random sample of them, you should get a pretty fair idea if he's using the tag system correctly. – Robert Harvey Apr 24 '12 at 22:23
@ShaDowWizArd That might be fine if the user didn't have edit privileges. Those were edits, not suggestions. – Kevin Apr 24 '12 at 22:24
@RobertHarvey I have a good idea of what most of his edits are. I'm asking for a way of checking that these are the only edits he made. – Gilles Apr 24 '12 at 22:25
If it says "Added New Tag" and doesn't say "Added/removed n characters" then the tag edits are the only change. – Robert Harvey Apr 24 '12 at 22:26
@RobertHarvey Pfft! that doesn't mean squat. Also, if you edit tags first, then change your mind and do some more edits within the 5 min grace period, then the previous edit message still holds and is not updated. – Lorem Ipsum Apr 24 '12 at 22:36
Looks like someone is digging for the Taxonomist badge. Maybe someone should tell this user to have a talk with the mods first, otherwise the work might be reversed. – Time Traveling Bobby Apr 25 '12 at 9:01
Well, I take my taxonomist-badge-comment back after seeing those edits myself...but I can not comment on the usefulness of those edits, either... – Time Traveling Bobby Apr 25 '12 at 9:08
Another problem is that fetching those summaries is limited to one every second. – Time Traveling Bobby Apr 25 '12 at 9:09
