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

How to confirm:

  1. Submit an edit suggestion on a post by a user with less than 2K reputation, using a user with less than 2K reputation.
  2. Sign is as the user receiving the edit suggestion and click the [Edit (1)] link below the post.
  3. Observe error message denying the user to approve or reject the edit.
  4. Observe how the edit can be acted upon via the link from receiver's notifications/inbox.

This first arose here, on one of my questions, and was deliberately replicated to test on Ask Ubuntu with an anonymous edit to a post with a 1000-odd rep user.

I just ran into this on LEGO Answers with this suggested edit. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Aug 18 '12 at 15:00
Sorry about that, we'll get this case fixed up. – Emmett Aug 19 '12 at 0:39
@Emmett No problem. – hexafraction Aug 19 '12 at 18:27
@Emmett Bugs like there, that can't be tested with just an example post, that need an entire site as a sandbox, are reason to get such a sandbox site. – hexafraction Aug 30 '12 at 22:59

This was an oversight by me as we designed the new review dashboard: I didn't account for allowing post owners to always be able to approve/reject suggested edits, regardless of their reputation. It's fixed now.
