How do suggested edits work?

I see that you get +2 if you are the edit suggester and it is approved however, my question is since people with 2,000+ rep can edit posts do they get +2? I am assuming that if you have 2,000 rep then your edits do not need to be approved, (hence my questions).

You can still gain +2 reputation on suggested edits to tag wikis and their excerpts, but you are no longer able to receive the +2 on regular suggested edits on answers and questions because you now have full edit privileges on those (and don't need your edits approved).

Keep in mind that once you hit 20,000 reputation, you'll also gain full edit privileges on tag wikis and will no longer be eligible for +2 on those either.

  • It must be really hard to realize that you won't be able to get these nice +2 anymore once you reach 20000 :(

  • @talnicolas: It's cool, I'm not even at 10k yet. There's plenty of time. And I've already gotten 20 reputation from suggested edits! That's 0.01% progress! I'll get there!

  • I'm tempted to try to get the rest of the way to 2k just by editing... (but not too tempted)
