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

If a low-rep user makes an edit which needs to be approved, does it get bumped to front-page? I hardly ever visit main page (am on unix.SE), so I wouldn't have noticed.

you should see a number in the top bar (between your badges and review) if there are edits for you to approve. I was hoping to find documentation on it, but I can't right now. – Kate Gregory Dec 16 '13 at 20:24

Pending edits only get bumped up to the top page if they are approved, see How do suggested edits work? for more details.

In short suggested edit is approved when one of these happens:

  1. Author of the post approves
  2. Diamond moderator approves
  3. Three users with full edit privilege (usually 2K) approve (Two on sites other than Stack Overflow)
  4. One user with full edit privilege choose to Improve the edit and tick the "this edit was helpful"
