Suppose someone suggested an edit to my own question which I approve (and am grateful). Is there any mechanism that allows me to accept the edit straight away that works for users <2k reputation?

    I had that happen once, and I just clicked "accept" and there it was! (unless I misunderstood you?)

  • The OP can always directly accept edits to their own question, as far as I can tell. You just have to reach it before two others do.

  • @Fabby I tried several times to find that magic button "accept". I always ended up hitting the "next" button, which kindly informed me that I have no privileges to review edits (in this context, to my own question). Commented Jan 26, 2015 at 16:46
  • I'll change a proverbial comma in one of your posts so that you can have a look.

    @AdamRyczkowski If all you get is the next button then that means the edit suggestion has already been handled (look up above the question/answer and you should get a breakdown of what happened). You still get a notification so you can double check.

If you have "missed" the accept button, it must have been a mistake, since:
