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

In How does peer review for edits work? the author said that "Anonymous users can suggest edits to any post more than 6 hours old."

And I want to know, How does the Stack Overflow calculate if Anonymous users reached to 6 hours old? Is it according to the accumulated time that Anonymous users stay in any Stack Overflow pages?

It's simple: was the question or answer posted more than 6 hours ago? If yes, then it is editable by anonymous users.

You seem to be misunderstanding that quote. The time pertains to the length of time the question or answer has been in existence, not the amount of time the user has spent on the site.
