Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

When I tried to test a suggeseted edit on Meta as Anonymous, I got.

Too many of your edits were rejected, try again in 7 days.

So, Community User's edit rights are revoked due to too many edits by anonymous users among the world?

I didn't do too many suggests (only one today) myself, so the error is not because of my suggestions alone I guess.

Edit: Added feature-request to mod tools according to waffles's comment, although I have no clue at all about what it is.

I totally need to add logging here for mods, so we can see list of IPs rejected with reasons. perhaps change this to a feature request around mod tools? – waffles♦

No issue for me; getting a nice and warm "Thanks for your edit! This edit will be visible only to you until it is peer reviewed." for this. Note that (now) it says "Anonymous had 0 edit suggestions approved, and 0 edit suggestions rejected." though. Not sure if that matters? – Arjan May 4 '11 at 10:42
    
@Arjan, yeah, strange then. – YOU May 4 '11 at 10:44

Maybe this is per IP, or IP range? – Pëkka May 4 '11 at 12:45
    
@Pekka, could be. probably I got someone else IP or got into that IP range, with last edit right then. :D I can click edit button, and I got this error when I tried to save it. But now the error show me right away, when I click edit button. – YOU May 4 '11 at 12:49
    
How do you anonymously edit? I tried opening this post in "incognito" mode, and I don't have an edit button? – user27414 May 4 '11 at 13:12
    
@Jon, that can only done with old questions (I think 6 or 8 hours old, IIRC) – YOU May 4 '11 at 13:14
    
OK - I just successfully edited a 13hr old question as anonymous. Obviously, YOU has been trolling as anonymous and has been IP banned as a result. Shame on YOU. – user27414 May 4 '11 at 13:16
    
@Jon, I only tried once, and it does not even goes into suggested list. Its not my fault :-) – YOU May 4 '11 at 13:18
