I proposed the following suggested edits today that were approved:

I am still under 2000 reputation. Shouldn't I have received +2 reputation for at least one of them?


1 Answer 1


Quoting the help center:

suggested edit is accepted: +2 (up to +1000 total per user)

A quick look at your profile:

  • questions and answers should be worth around ~900 reputation (tentatively more because one upvote and one downvote nets +3 reputation)
  • you have created ~540 suggested edits

So it's likely you've had 500 edits approved at 2 reputation each, and hit the limit.

  • 1
    Ahh, must have missed that. I am indeed over 500 suggested edits.
