How do suggested edits work?

I have been doing some edit to posts and sometimes when I have one rejected I don't know why. I don't know yet how many approvals or rejects needed for accepting or not an edit done to a post. How many people must vote for the same edit?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Look at the 'activity' tab on your profile page, filter on 'suggestions'. You'll see a 'suggested' link on each suggestion, which allows you to review the reviews. – Martijn Pieters Oct 30 '12 at 15:11
On Stack Overflow, 3 reviews are needed, on other sites, only 2. – Martijn Pieters Oct 30 '12 at 15:19
In particular, don't just search for "Thanks in advance" within questions and remove that, touching nothing else that's wrong with the question. Take some more time and provide a more substantial edit that improves the question. A few of your edits were rejected as being too minor for that reason. – Brad Larson Oct 30 '12 at 15:19
@MartijnPieters that's what I was looking for – mram888 Oct 30 '12 at 15:21

My personal view: you seem to just remove "Thanks in advance" from posts. This might pass for recent posts, but for older posts you have to improve other things if you want it approved.

Personally I will almost always reject such a minor edit unless it also change other things in the post. The reason is that searching for "thanks in advance" then suggesting to remove it without any further effort smells of plain badge hunting and/or rep farming and not really improving anything.

The age of the post shouldn't matter all. – Servy Oct 30 '12 at 15:34
@Servy it matters to me, since there is less point in bumping old posts to the front, unless there is real improvement. – Shadow Wizard Oct 30 '12 at 15:42
My point is that this shouldn't be done for either old or new posts, not that it should be done for both. – Servy Oct 30 '12 at 15:43
@Servy I know and personally I will also reject for both, but from long experience doing it on new posts have better "chances" to pass. – Shadow Wizard Oct 30 '12 at 15:44
What should be approved and what people actually approved are so far removed that I don't even bother comparing them anymore. Just removing "thanks in advance" and nothing else shouldn't be accepted; it is "too minor". – Servy Oct 30 '12 at 15:46
@Servy can't agree more, but like I said earlier today there are no rules for this. (just yet) – Shadow Wizard Oct 30 '12 at 15:48
