User A rejects an edit. User B approves it, then User C rejects it again.

Does this have consequences for User B? Will they lose the right to approve/reject edits?

  • Concrete case is this when @gonczor was clearly right (i made this edit to my own answer again and it was approved). I dont want him to get harmed for being right. – Nils Lindemann Mar 30 '18 at 13:55

    According to this answer, if a user does this too many times and then fails an audit, it could lead to a review ban. But nothing happens if the user never fails an audit. – Donald Duck Mar 30 '18 at 17:07

No, why should it be so? Disagreement is ubiquitous and natural, that's why more than a single OP is involved.

User B might fail on audits, which are frequently strayed in their review queue, this would have consequences of throttling and banning them from reviews.

    can you explain "User B might fail on audits, which are frequently strayed in their review queue"? Does this mean Reviewers sometimes get edits which actually have not been made, in order to test if they correctly approve/reject it? – Nils Lindemann Mar 30 '18 at 14:10

    @Nils Exactly that, yes. Also if they had attracted attention of site moderators, through flags (as Glorfindel mentioned), they could be banned manually by these. – πάντα ῥεῖ Mar 30 '18 at 14:11

    Note that review bans only happen automatically on the six sites where review audits are enabled. – Laurel Mar 30 '18 at 14:25

There's no automatic process for this; just like people can disagree about a post, voting it down while others vote it up, people can disagree about a suggested edit as well.

If a user habitually reviews 'wrongly' and you notice this, you can flag one of their posts for moderator attention.

  • Are you referring to the 'flag' links on Questions/Answer? I am hesitating to test-click it because i dont know if this can be undone. – Nils Lindemann Mar 31 '18 at 8:21

    Yes, the Flag links opens a dialog. The flag is cast only after clicking the button in the bottom right corner of that dialog. – Glorfindel Mod Mar 31 '18 at 8:29
