Speaking from experience, waiting for a suggested edit to be approved (before 2000 rep.) can be tiring and annoying. So what I want to know is if you guys think the following is a good idea. For those of us (me) who are avid editors, after ~100-150 approved edits, we get a privilege on the site that allows us to immediately publish edits that we make. This is just an idea, and I'd love your feedback or suggestions for improvements on this
Features like this are put behind an experience wall because we want experience.
Both technical with the subject matter, and with the system.
150 good edits is equivalent a weekend of contact time for some people. That's not nearly enough time to get everything right, or more importantly, for the system to notice a problem (in appropriate edits, etc).
We don't want new users in a position where they can cause lots damage without oversight.
