I'm a total newbie to this site and still learning the ins-and-outs... I was skimming through the explanations of how reputation works and saw that you can gain reputation when "a suggested edit is accepted."
I asked my first question yesterday and someone came along and edited it (specifically, added a tag). I honestly hadn't put much thought at all into tags and had only come up with the one tag needed to meet the minimum requirement. I agreed with and appreciated the edit, as I felt it was both an improvement to my question and a learning experience for me as a brand new member. When I later saw that accepted edits provided a reputation gain, I looked for a way that I could "accept" the edit to reward the person for being helpful.
Granted, the user who edited my question has over 3,000 rep and I really doubt another +2 would actually matter to them... but I was raised with "good manners" drilled into me, so from my point of view it's more about a way to say "thanks" to the person than the little "pat on the butt" amount of reputation they'd get.
Anyway, I'm wondering whether I overlooked a way to "accept" the edit or if something about the site's mechanics make it so that I'm not supposed to have that option in this particular case.
