Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

I was clicking through my suggested edits queue again today and I accidentally discovered a way to see which users approved an edit and which rejected it. Since most of the voting on things on SO is private, this struck me as odd.

Should I be able to access this information? (I'm a 20k user on Stack Overflow).

Nope, that information has always been public. You get to see all suggested edit decisions if you have enough rep, by looking at too. – Martijn Pieters Oct 30 '12 at 14:26
@MartijnPieters -- Very interesting. Is there any easy way to go back through and look at my reviews so I can compare how I vote to how others voted on the same reviews? – mgilson Oct 30 '12 at 14:28
Good point. I would be interested to see a rationale for which votes are public and which are secret. – itsbruce Oct 30 '12 at 14:46

Yes, you should be able to see this information. It's not intended to be private.

With enough reputation (not sure how much) you can see recent suggested edit decisions too.

You can see your own suggested edit votes in your 'activity' tab, filter on 'reviews'. That is a list of all review decisions, including the Close, Reopen, Late Answers, First Posts, and Suggested Edits, but cannot be filtered further.

Bummer, I was hoping for a hacker badge ;-) – mgilson Oct 30 '12 at 14:30
Pretty sure the rep requirement is 2k. I'm pretty sure it's not any more than that at least, because as soon as you can use the review queues you can see what other reviewers have done. – Servy Oct 30 '12 at 15:52
@Servy: Currently, at Programmers.SE I have 1.5k reputation, which means I can review first posts and late answers. I can only see my own reviews on the history tab.. – Martijn Pieters Oct 30 '12 at 15:53
