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

This question already has an answer here:

I was about to improve a suggested edit when I noticed it was already approved. When I checked, I saw it took only two "Approve" votes instead of three. A bug maybe?

I recently saw someone describing a similar problem here (couldn't find the link), and it was a problem with the facebook sub-site. This is apparently different.

Ah sorry, I didn't notice that. Voting to close too. – bfavaretto Feb 18 '13 at 21:13
up vote 3 down vote accepted

The original poster approved the edit; if they approve the edit, then it automatically goes through.
