I used to be able to Improve suggested edits if they were better, but I noticed some typo or somesuch. It even had a check box for "This edit was helpful" or something to that effect, thus giving credit to the original editor as a helpful edit.

However, I just noticed I can't do that anymore. All I can do is approve the edit, reject the edit, or skip it entirely.

What happened to the ability to improve suggested edits?

You can approve tag wiki edits at 5,000 reputation, but you can't edit tag wikis without oversight until 20,000.

So you won't see the "Improve" button on suggested edits to tag wikis and tag wiki excerpts for another 8k, give or take.

  • Oooh. I never knew there was a distinction between the two!

    That is a ~lot~ of rep required.

    I just realized something... I never specified I was trying to edit a tag wiki! Should I be creeped out by this?

  • @Fluttershy Only insofar as you find other people visiting the review queue creepy. ;)
