How is this possible?

He is not even a moderator.

    Guess: Someone proposed an edit to his own post and he reviewed it.

  • @MartijnPieters, then it will be a bug.

  • @Azik no, not a bug. Jan 22, 2014 at 12:18
  • @Azik: Why would that be? I am wrong in this case, however. Jan 22, 2014 at 12:18
  • His last suggested edit review was on his own post. It's by design. Bonus: I hate non free hand circles.

  • @ShadowWizard: No, this is not a duplicate of that post; this is about reviews on your own posts instead. That specific bug, as you pointed out, has been fixed. Jan 22, 2014 at 12:26
  • @MartijnPieters - He has not voted to close a bug report he linked in your answer. See the answer on a possible duplicate question. :-)

He reviewed a suggested edit on his own post. Note that his name is highlighted in blue on the reviewers roll call:

If you look over his review history you'll see that this was his 21st suggested edit review today.

The OP is always given a veto vote on suggested edits on his own posts, regardless of review queue limits.

  • Not sure that's the case, in my opinion it's more likely a deleted post. Jan 22, 2014 at 12:20
  • @ShadowWizard: this is his most recent suggested edit review. Jan 22, 2014 at 12:21
  • True, there was a bug, fixed only 12 days ago. Before the bug fix, that review wouldn't have counted and the suggested edit page would have shown empty as in the bug report. Jan 22, 2014 at 12:23
  • @ShadowWizard: There are 20 other suggested edits in his history since midnight UTC. This is review 21, on his own post. This is not about deleted posts (which we would not see in his history). Jan 22, 2014 at 12:23
  • But when I reviewed my own post after daily limit the count was not incremented.

    @Azik: which was a bug, now fixed. :-) Jan 22, 2014 at 12:37
  • And today 22 :D

  • @Azik: yup, the last two are again reviews on his own posts. Jan 23, 2014 at 11:56
  • can you tell me why this user has reviewed more than 20 edits today?

  • @Azik: Again, reviews on your own posts don't count against the limit. See stackoverflow.com/review/suggested-edits/3942444 for the one extra post, it's on his own answer. Jan 31, 2014 at 12:41
  • But, that's not his 21st review.

  • @Azik: No, but reviews on your own posts don't count against the quota. It doesn't matter if that review is the first, somewhere in the middle or the last, he still gets to review 20 suggested edits in a day that are not on his own posts. Jan 31, 2014 at 12:44
  • Could you please provide me the link where it is mentioned?
    – Azik
    Jan 31, 2014 at 12:45
  • Why would it work any other way? Reviews on your own edits don't count as reviews, because you usually find those in your inbox, not in the review queue. Jan 31, 2014 at 12:46
  • yeah, I can't found them on review queue, but I don't understand reviews on your own edits don't count as reviews but can be added to review count.
