Check every single links here (well, the interface is not so good b/c of that): stackoverflow.com/users/1280616/… – nhahtdh Aug 19 '12 at 7:00
Go to your profile and then the activity tab. Narrow it down to suggestions. Then click on those to see whether they were accepted or rejected. – Bart Aug 19 '12 at 7:01
@Bart in some it was approved and in some it might be rejected or edited again than now would you tell me can i get this right again ?? – NullPoiиteя Aug 19 '12 at 7:05
If you have a number of edits rejected, you get a time-out for a week. I don't know if that's the case here, but it might be. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/76251/… – Bart Aug 19 '12 at 7:07
In the latest build, it seems that they remove the link to the details of each suggested edit. I have filed a bug report. – nhahtdh Aug 19 '12 at 7:09

You've had an abnormally large number of your suggested edits rejected. When that happens, the system automatically prevents you from suggesting further edits for a week.

Looking though your suggestions, I think I see the problem. You've recently been suggesting quite a few edits that consist of simply applying code-formatting or bolding to text. This can be helpful when placed around sections of actual code, but when used over a large number of words in prose, it just makes posts harder to read. I'd suggest not doing that.
