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

I noticed that the rule of approving suggested edits on Stack Overflow is "2 accept or reject votes are required to approve/reject an edit" (the last paragraph of an answer to How do suggested edits work?).

But according to my experience on Stack Overflow, it just need one vote. If someone edits one of my questions or answers, it will be approved after I approve or reject it, just one vote from me.

I think, you are right that your vote alone is enough if you are owner of the post.

If you (with 2000+ rep) approve a suggest edit, and choose Improve function to improve it, then your version also need approve? it means Stackoverflow will damage the users' privilege of direct edit who have with 2000+ rep. – Roy1 Mar 30 '11 at 2:17
@Roy, No, Community user will approve it first, before my new edit for that case. – YOU Mar 30 '11 at 2:18
thank you for your answer.You solved part of my question. But I still have a query: is your version from improving the pending version must be apprved? – Roy1 Mar 30 '11 at 2:29
@Roy, Oops! I wanted to say that, it will be normal edit to 2000+ user, once Community user approved existing pending edit. So, no approvment needed. – YOU Mar 30 '11 at 2:31
