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

After using the suggested edits feature for a bit I found that I do not have the technical knowledge for some suggested edits to make a decision.

So it just sits there.

How about a feature that allows me to hide suggested edits. So if there is an edit I don't have enough knowledge to approve or reject, I can just hide it.

This probably does not seem that important now but when users start figuring this out and using the suggested edit feature more, it will be pretty important to be able to do this.

Isn't the correctness mainly the responsibility of the editor, who (when registered) will be shown as such in the revision history? – Arjan Feb 15 '11 at 17:12
There is an inherit responsibility with the auditors to make correct decisions. – Ólafur Waage Feb 15 '11 at 17:21

I would rather have the suggested edits filtered by tags, so you did not see them unless you had more than the normal number of upvotes for at least one of the tags.

But that would slow down the system.

I would also like a feature to hide or abstain from voting on suggested edits. There's one in the queue today where the edit is one I don't know is technically correct, but the answer it is an edit on is hundreds of lines long and it is cluttering up the page.

I am very tempted to reject it (it has one reject vote already) just to make it go away, but that would be wrong, since it might be a valid change.
