How could a user with 980 reputation points review a task from the Suggested Edits review queue, which requires at least 2k reputation?

Please understand that I have nothing personal against him; I'm just asking to understand how it's possible.

    @DontVoteMeDown I'm suggesting an edit to your question so you can see how this would work. You should get a notification about it, and then you can come here to the question to review my edit. – Esoteric Screen Name Jul 16 '13 at 15:27
  • @EsotericScreenName Thank you for showing me how it works(and fixing my bad english). – DontVoteMeDown Jul 16 '13 at 15:32

    @kiamaluno The idea was for DontVoteMeDown to come review the edit :p – Esoteric Screen Name Jul 16 '13 at 15:34
  • See the more related dupe. – Undo Jul 16 '13 at 17:39
  • @Undo yeah, that answer is more explanative too. – DontVoteMeDown Jul 16 '13 at 17:43

The owner of the post can review suggested edits to their post (with a binding vote, even) at any reputation level. Those still count as reviews as far as the queue is concerned.

  • But he can accept or decline it? – DontVoteMeDown Jul 16 '13 at 15:18

    Yes, the OP has all the same options to Approve, Reject, or Edit as a normal 2k reviewer does. – animuson Jul 16 '13 at 15:18
  • I never know that, not even know how to do it. Thank you anyway. – DontVoteMeDown Jul 16 '13 at 15:19

    @DontVoteMeDown usually (on stack overflow at least) the review happens so quickly the OP never gets a chance to review – Richard Tingle Jul 16 '13 at 16:35
