I can't see how to review edits. I theoretically have the "privilege" and I recently happened upon a question that had an edit pending, which I approved. But I don't see where a list of pending edits can be accessed. Nor do I see where pending tag wiki edits show up.

Am I missing something?

(I've tagged this because it needs one of those compulsory tags, but none really seem appropriate...)

    The only bug is that you don't have 10000 rep yet :-) Commented Jun 29, 2011 at 12:52
  • @Hendrik I'm hoping to patch that bug in the next couple of months

  • I'm wondering if I'm in the same situation as you were when you asked this question: I'm >5k but <10k. I have approved exactly one suggested edit, but when I go to the suggested edits tab, it's always empty. Could the title of this question be Can I approve suggested edits with less than 10k reputation?? If so, I suggest changing it to that.

The list of edits are part of the moderator-tools (10k privileges). You can approve edits before that but only if you stumble over them. You can see them by looking at the edit link below the post. If one or more edits are pending a number is displayed in parentheses behind it, like edit (1). This is by design.

I was asking about the same question, but about tag wiki edits (which didn't had that indicator then) on Meta.SX: Users with 5k+ rep have “approve tag wiki edits” privilege but can't see list of suggested edits.
