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

Look at this suggested edit. The person has suggested an edit on his own post and also approved it. How is it possible?

Wild guess: Two different, now merged, accounts. – Bart Feb 1 '13 at 6:37
@Bart - Oh.. Didn't think that. That's the situation. :) – hims056 Feb 1 '13 at 6:41

They created another user that then got merged into their main account. Apparently it was heavily used (note the -725 reputation reversal on Jul 19 '12). According to his history, he doesn't have a +2 for the edit, so all is well (who really cares).
