I am a member of the Magento Stack Exchange site (in beta) and I have a 770 reputation points.

Recently, I was reviewing Close votes posts and found that a user with just seven reputation points participated in a review of suggested edits.

But the review page says I need a minimum of 1000 reputation points to review a suggested edit.

Enter image description here

How could that user do that?

Is this a bug?

    Probably he reviewed an edit suggested on his own post. – hims056 Nov 12 '13 at 9:03
  • is it possible, because I don't remember i was allowed to review edit's made on my posts when I had fewer rep points. – Shathish Nov 12 '13 at 9:05
  • Don't like the look of those auto-shapes in red. Boooo. – Duncan Jones Nov 12 '13 at 9:27
  • so, which color you would like to see? I mean which color could attract attention? – Shathish Nov 12 '13 at 9:28

    @Shathish free hand red circles are ideal. You can also draw free hand arrows. :-) – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Nov 12 '13 at 9:54
  • @ShaWizDowArd: all right! :) – Shathish Nov 12 '13 at 12:17

Any user can review suggested edit on his own posts without having enough privilege. That user review an edit on his own post. If any edit is suggested on your post, you will be notified to review it.

Also, if the OP of the post review an edit, the background color of his name will look like this:

    No +1 until you put FHRC! Worth also to mention, the background of the user was changed per my request for this reason exactly, lol... :) – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Nov 12 '13 at 9:08
  • @ShaWizDowArd - Yeah I needed to mention it. Updated :-) – hims056 Nov 12 '13 at 9:11
  • now there was an edit to my question and I got no notification to review it. why (out of curiosity)? – Shathish Nov 12 '13 at 9:15
  • @Shathish - Which question are you talking about? And how did you know that there is an edit on your question? – hims056 Nov 12 '13 at 9:18

    @Shathish user with full edit privilege doesn't need his edit to be approved. In your case, diamond dev has made the edit on your question here. Is was also a trivial edit (less than 6 characters) so in case of non trivial edit you will get notification in your inbox, linking to the revisions page. :) – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Nov 12 '13 at 9:18
  • @hims056: I mentioned about this same question, edited by m0sa. There was an update message "an edit has been made to your post" over my question. Sha Wiz Dow Ard cleared my doubt! :) – Shathish Nov 12 '13 at 9:21
