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

While trying to review a task, it says:

You need at least 2k reputation to review Suggested Edits

That means I can get the Custodian only after 2000 rep for the suggested edits(if i've got everything right :P)

BUT, I can see that this badge was recently rewarded to the users with less than 10 rep. How come?

I may be wrong at some point, but please help me clearing out this doubt.

If there's one thing I ask, it's that you don't just review posts to earn badges. Do so because you honestly care to check on the quality of incoming content. – Brad Larson Jan 4 '13 at 18:36
@BradLarson, that's not the way incentives work. We incentivize people so that they will be more motivated to do the action we desire. It's not wrong to get rep or badges, it's just wrong to do sloppy work to get it. – Lance Roberts Jan 4 '13 at 18:40
Hi Brad, trust me I do that with full honesty. I am a learner and to help the people. I am participating actively in facebook api forum. Not just about the badge, was just curious :) – Sahil Mittal Jan 4 '13 at 18:54
@Sahil - Great to hear. We appreciate the help, particularly when it comes to keeping the Facebook tags clean. Man, are they a mess. – Brad Larson Jan 4 '13 at 18:57
Yes, messy and moderators are less there (but they are doing great) – Sahil Mittal Jan 4 '13 at 19:12

You can approve a suggested edit on your own post regardless of your reputation level. This is how user1946481 (for one example) got the Custodian badge for approving an edit to Creating a hierarchy based on a self referencing table in MS Access '10 using treeview.
