On SO, if I edit a question my edit is immediately in effect. But if I approve an edit by another user, it says that one more approval is needed before changes are in effect. Isn't this inconsistent? I mean I have full permission to make modifications on a question but I cannot simply approve an edit?
For example assume that there is a typo in title, and someone fixed it. If I approve it, there is still need for 1 more approval. If I fix it myself it will be fixed immediately.
