Why is there a 1000 reputation reward limit for accepted edits? I started to be more active in fixing code indentation, and other things, in Stack Overflow questions, and I was enjoying the fact that this would bring me 2 reputation for every accepted edit. I was thinking of fixing a few questions every time I was bored so that I could gain reputation and help people to read questions. But suddenly I discovered that there's a 1000 limit on this feature.
The other way to gain reputation is by suggesting edits to existing posts as a new registered user. Each edit will be peer reviewed, and if it is accepted, you will earn +2 reputation. You can only earn a maximum of +1000 (500 edits) total reputation through suggested edits, however.
I admit this discouraged me a lot.
Is this in order to block people from making edits just for reputation gain? Why don't we just add a per-day limit instead?
