While reviewing suggested edits, I found that tag wiki edit suggestions have vote score on the left

enter image description here

In my understanding the score is for letting reviewer know how important/useful a post is so that they can review carefully. But what purpose does it serve in tag wiki edits?

    This vote element is also not subject to the vote breakout privilege, which probably means it's just a dummy vote class. This could probably be tagged as a bug. – Spevacus Mar 18 '20 at 21:31
  • @Spevacus Vote breakout doesn't work in Suggested Edits for posts also (another bug?). – Kulfy Mar 18 '20 at 21:34

    The vote count isn’t new; it’s appeared in screenshots from 2011. – Sebastian Simon Mar 18 '20 at 21:45
  • Probably part of the reason for seeing the votes (other than favoring the tag's creation) is disdain for plagiarism, and it's a status-completed duplicate; so should be re-reported. – Rob Mar 19 '20 at 4:24
  • I've gone ahead and tagged this as a bug, per Rob's comment as well as a few others. – Spevacus Apr 3 '20 at 21:01

    @Spevacus It's not really a regression, since as the answer there says, the only thing that was fixed was the fact that it says "answered" instead of "created". – Sonic the Curiouser Hedgehog Apr 3 '20 at 21:12
  • @SonictheAnonymousHedgehog Fair enough. I suppose it has been like this for years. – Spevacus Apr 3 '20 at 21:13
