I just noticed on the question <li> looking bizarre on IE that the question had been edited by a user with rep score 47.

How is that even possible, aren't 2000 rep necessary? Unless he somehow lost 1950+ points within the last 50 minutes, but that would be surprising.

    Haven't you looked at the front page of Meta today? Someone losing 1950 rep in the last 50 minutes would not be that surprising. ;) Feb 28 '11 at 19:47

    Speaking of <li> looking bizarre on IE, does this question render like this for anyone else?

  • I edited it again, since his edit made your HTML invalid Feb 28 '11 at 19:51
  • Most people losing rep today lost a few hundreds, that's why 2000 would be more surprising imho, especially if the final score is less than 50 :)

Anyone can edit anything, the edit needs to be approved by a mod ;)


The whole process is described here. With pictures :)

PS You don't have to be a mod to approve edits, sufficient reputation will do. As I understand, you need 2k to approve post edits, 5k to approve tag wiki edits and 10k to see suggested edits page.

  • Actually you just need the rep to edit to be able to approve an edit. So you just need 2k rep.

    Oh, yeah, @jzd is right, my link is about the tag wiki edits... sorry for the confusion.

An edit can be proposed by any user now, but the edits proposed by people of less than 2K must be confirmed by the user, or a mod, prior to the edit appearing.
