Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Lately I've noticed this shiny new link in the toolbar: enter image description here

It's pretty cool that anonymous/low-rep users can now contribute to the quality of Stack Overflow.

However, is it relevant that multiple reviewers are required to validate an edit? I find it weird that the community entrusts me to edit posts, but that my intervention alone isn't enough to propagate someone else's edits. After all, if I like it so much, I can just go make the changes myself.

What do you think about that?

I've already seen a number of reviews that had 1 accept and 1 reject vote. The edits were indeed marginal. So I can definitely see some benefit to requiring two people to approve. – Robert Harvey Feb 6 '11 at 17:03
I thought it was said that there were only two reviewers required on SO post edits, not on all sites. I was under the impression other sites only needed one reviewer to approve. Does that impact this question? – jcolebrand Feb 6 '11 at 19:46

Other side of the medal:

Abridged too far?
