I just made an edit to this post and found here that the OP, a user with not nearly 2k reputation (704 at the moment), has approved my suggested edit.

How can this be? Is it because he's the OP? I've certainly never noticed that I can review suggested edits to my own posts. (And if I can, then I would like to know how/where to do so.) Or is something being displayed incorrectly?

    $\begingroup$ Yes, because he's the OP. You can review suggested edits to your own posts when you are quick enough to get to it before others approve or reject it. You get an inbox notification of suggested edits on your own post. The OP's vote is binding, so the OP can single-handedly approve or reject a suggestion. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Fischer Jun 10 '15 at 11:36

  • $\begingroup$ To answer the part: If I can review suggested edits to my own post then where/how? According to this you should receive notification if your post received a suggested edit with a link to suggested edit - using that link you should be able to review the edit. (At least if I understood that post correctly and if this process have not changed significantly in the meantime.) $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Jun 10 '15 at 13:35
