# Why have I been banned from suggesting edits to posts?

The title pretty much says it all, but I will provide a bit more information.

Last night I realized there was a user who was tagging multiple multivariable calculus questions as , and so I started editing these posts to remove that tag. (I felt it was false advertising, so to speak.)

However, later I became aware that I was banned from suggesting edits. Can someone please explain to me why this occurred?

On top of that, I noticed some my edits that were rejected and then edited for the same thing that I suggested.

• The short version is that too many of your edit suggestions were rejected, and therefore the system imposed an automatic temporary suggested-edit ban. – Daniel Fischer May 18 '17 at 18:43
• An alternative, and perhaps more constructive, approach to editing out the tags would be making a suggestion in a comment that the questioner him- or herself remove them. – LSpice Feb 2 '18 at 16:06

This was something automatically done because a large percentage of your recent suggested edits were rejected. By my count 9 of the 15 edits you have suggested in the last 24 hours have been rejected. That's a 60% failure rate! The actual formula looks at the previous seven days. If, during this period, $$3 \cdot \text{rejects} - 15 \geq \text{approvals}$$ you will be banned from suggesting edits for one week. (Source 1 and Source 2.)
