    I am pretty sure you cannot receive the rep once you reach 2k. – Josh Mein Oct 16 '13 at 21:20
  • You get 2 rep points for approved edits you suggest untill you reach 2k. – juergen d Oct 16 '13 at 21:20

After you reach 2000 reputation, you no longer recieve reputation from editing. This is because your edits no longer have to be reviewed; they are applied immediately.

When you have less than 2000 reputation, other users review your edits in the suggested edit queue, and you gain rep when they're approved.

See the privilege page for editing others' posts for more information.


These reputations bonuses are gone once you don't have to go through the edit review queue anymore.

The +2 was awarded for having one of your reviews accepted.
