Edit a question (from other user) and get +2 rep ?

My reputation just jumped 2 points for no visible reason. The graph shows it being because of this question, but I never answered it, just submitted a small revision.

I've never seen anything on Meta, or S.O. that suggests that Edits earn you rep. What happened?

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.

Edited FAQ 'How does reputation work' to include this method of gaining rep. – Crisfole Feb 2 '11 at 20:57

As long as you're under 2,000 reputation, you get 2 points (with a maximum of 1,000) for every approved edit you suggested.

Up to a maximum of 1,000 points. – ChrisF Feb 2 '11 at 20:42
Where is that documented? I got pretty confused. – Crisfole Feb 2 '11 at 20:42
@Cpfohl it's documented unofficially here (meta.stackexchange.com/questions/77505/…). It only just got implemented so I'm guessing it might not have made its way to official pages yet. – berry120 Feb 2 '11 at 23:03
Thanks! It's now officially (by me...you should go check accuracy) part of the "How does reputation work" community wiki. – Crisfole Feb 2 '11 at 23:04

You get reputation if you have an edit suggestion approved.
