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 Vote breakout doesn't work in Suggested Edits for posts also (another bug?).

    The vote count isn’t new; it’s appeared in screenshots from 2011. Commented Mar 18, 2020 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.

  • I've gone ahead and tagged this as a bug, per Rob's comment as well as a few others.

    @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". Commented Apr 3, 2020 at 21:12

The review page for tag wiki edits no longer displays a vote count, so I imagine the developers/project managers of the review queue design overhaul determined that showing a score on this page wasn't useful (as did most of us, I imagine).

To see for yourself, here's a recently approved tag wiki edit review. No score is visible on the left of the page as the old UI indicated.
