My account had editing privileges suspended for 7 days for rejected edits. I hit 2,000 reputation and I gain the privileged to edit questions and answers without another user's review AND the suspension is no longer active.
I assume this is status-bydesign, but my question is, should it be by design? If a user did something to have privileges revoked, does the accumulation of reputation points negate the undesired action that was previously performed? Does this happen with other privileges as other rep levels?
To test something, I also went and decreased my reputation back below 2,000 and the restrictions that I previously had were still in place which leads me to believe that the restriction flag is unaffected by reputation, so why should the privilege's flag be affected by rep?
As the tag suggests, I just want to start a discussion about this because I can't find documentation that explains the rationale, whether it be correct or incorrect..
Back above 2,000 reputation and the editing privileges are re-enabled. In a twist, I cannot edit tag-wikis, which is what I gained the suspension for. The suspension remains active with the same message:
Too many of your edits were rejected, try again in 7 days.
Perhaps this is not intentional or there is a sophisticated system of flags, in which case my original question of whether or not this is status-bydesign has been answered and it is. Still remains is whether or not it should be.
All my privileges have been restored. I haven't seen much additional discussion here by (admin/moderator team) so I guess I'll just assume this is all by design and it's okay that this is the design. Unfortunately, the one answer available is difficult to mark as correct because it doesn't address whether or not this issue has been discussed.
