The other way to gain reputation is by suggesting edits to existing posts as a new registered user. Each edit will be peer reviewed, and if it is accepted, you will earn +2 reputation. You can only earn a maximum of +1000 total reputation through suggested edits, however.

Given you hit 2000, you lost the ability to suggest an edit, so that no longer applies, because you earned this one

2000 Edit* other people’s posts, vote to approve or reject suggested edits

* Without suggesting. Yes you read right, you can now edit away at will without awaiting approval.

This seems fine to me. By the time you've got that level of reputation, you're already engaged with the site, and probably making corrections as needed. If editing is really your thing, you can go for the editor badges.

(And you still do get +2 for accepted tag wiki edits.)

Of course you only get +2 for accepted tag wiki edits until you hit 20k rep and don't have to get your wiki edits reviewed! :) –  Gabe Mar 29 '11 at 20:06

@Gabe: oh, the hard life of the 20k users. :) –  mattdm Mar 29 '11 at 20:28

The only think harder than being a 20k user is being a mod. I'm so glad I'm not a mod! –  Gabe Mar 29 '11 at 20:42
    
@Gabe Or until you hit 1000 reputation earned from suggested edits. –  Grace Note Mar 29 '11 at 21:53

You receive 2 rep points per approval of your edits (up to 1,000 points). Once you have 2,000 reputation, your edits are no longer held for approval and there are no more reputation rewards as a result.
