Why set the bar so high for viewing 'suggested edits' review tab?

This question was inspired by Do we need a Bat-Signal on Meta, calling in help when the edit queue is full?

I currently have 2696 Rep on SO, which gives me the privilege of editing questions and answers.

Occasionally I open a question/answer to edit it to find a suggested edit waiting for review, it seems I am able to vote to accept/reject the answer.

I haven't found a way of listing suggested edits that are waiting for review, but maybe I've missed it. I couldn't find anything with a search.

If there is currently no way of a user with sub 5k rep getting a list of suggested edits then maybe it should be made available. It would certainly help with the current suggested edit back log.

I have added the tag in case this does not already exist.

The linked questions do help, but don't answer the "How can I help" part.

  • Ahh, didn't find that. My SO search foo needs improvment. – vascowhite Apr 20 '12 at 10:17
  • You can vote-to-close your question if you feel that those answer your question. – Manishearth Apr 20 '12 at 10:18
  • Note that you now get access to the queue well below 10k. I forgot whether it's 3k or 5k, though. – Daniel Fischer Apr 20 '12 at 10:18

  • @vascogotlost: Well, the sneaky way is to find the end of the queue by messing with the URL--eg current end of queue is here on MSO. But I suggest you stay away from the queue till you get to 5k – Manishearth Apr 20 '12 at 10:29

Lucky for you, there's an app for that™!

Suggested Edits Queue for Mere Mortals

From that post on Stack Apps:

This Java command-line app gives you access to the Suggested Edits queue using the Stack Exchange 2.0 API. It is ideally suited for users in the 2000 <= reputation < 5000 range.

Since it's Java, all you need is the Java Runtime Environment to run this app. Then you can start pounding away at that suggested edits queue =)

  • Note: Contrary to what the readme says, the "duplicates" parameter appears to be required. I get a NullPointerException if I leave that out. Works great otherwise. – Josh Darnell Apr 20 '12 at 12:59
