As a new Stack Exchange user, one restriction put in place on my account is a requirement that a peer-review must take place on any edit I make on another post. I understand that there are many good reasons to have this set in place, and I don't have anything against the restriction.
However, as someone who enjoys fixing code formatting and helping newer users with their stackexchange markup, I've found myself making multiple edits that do so. Unfortunately, after suggesting the edit (with the correct code formatting/tags added, etc.) I've found that many times, 5-10 minutes later, another user will have posted the exact same edit, with zero credit towards myself, who made the original edit.
I also understand that "the points don't matter," and that stackexchange isn't an RPG. The most important goal is that the edit is made so that other users can easily interpret the information that was displayed on the edited post. However, that doesn't change the fact that a user with full editing privileges can take the exact edit of a user who needs to go through the peer-review system and use it for their own.
How can a new user point out the clearly stolen changes? I know the ultimate goal of a correctly formatted post is achieved, but I and other new users still deserve recognition for our contributions.
