When I look at the review queue for "Suggested Edits", it tells me that

You need at least 2k reputation to review Suggested Edits.

But I saw a user with 300-400 reputation reviewed Suggested Edits.
How is this possible?

  • Just to make it clear, the above comments means where did you see a user review suggested edits when they have 300-400 rep, not where you saw the message. Feb 27, 2013 at 12:08

    It's possible to review a suggested edit with less than 2k rep but only if you're the "owner" of the post that the edit was suggested on. Feb 27, 2013 at 12:08
  • link search for user rubrin. A user with a rep of 1, created the account 2 days ago, already reviewed?! Update: Better link. And ben is right in that this one reviewed a suggested edit on his own post.

  • @cfi As the comments above state... it's their own post. The owner may cast a binding vote to accept or reject. And you know you can link straight to the edit-suggestion, right?
