Can someone explain to me what this means?

Too many of your edits were rejected, try again in 7 days.

    the warning itself is ambiguous, it should state clearly its meaning not 7 days when after 2 days it still says 7 days

    You should probably create a new question tagged 'feature-request' about improving the message.

  • It means that too many of your edits were rejected, and you won't be able to suggest a new one for seven days.

It seems rather straightforward. You've had 9 edit suggestions rejected. High rep users reviewing edit suggestions takes time, so the system temporarily stops accepting suggestions from people with a pattern of rejections. You should look into why those suggestions were rejected so you can hopefully stop making the same mistakes in the future

From the proposed FAQ post about edit suggestions:

What about abuse?

There are strict limits enforced. If a user (anonymous or registered) submits many rejected edits they will be automatically banned from suggesting edits. The fixed size queue also helps protect us from abuse.

  • so if reach that limit, there's no way that i can get it back?

  • @ianace Well, not for 7 days; then you should be fine Apr 20, 2011 at 5:39

    well it isnt that intuitive enough, if a day has passed then it should state 6 days not the static initial 7 days

    I assume that as well as quality control, this prevents all the posts being turned into ads for WizzoSuperMatic BellyFluffExtractor TM
