So yesterday, I asked this question, which received a few edits, which is nothing out of the ordinary. However, here comes a request for question version $4$, which oddly enough, for some reason, I get a notification in my inbox for a suggested edit, and when I clicked on it, it brought me to the "Suggested Edits" queue, which proposed fixing a broken command that was broken because of a placeholder being removed. (which I approved because hey, if it breaks, then it really should be removed)

Sorry if it seems like I'm adding too much info, if it is a little too much, I'll revise/delete the info.

This is perfectly fine, except when I go back to "All queues" I see that the "Suggested Edits" queue is locked until I attain $2000$ reputation.

My question

Why is this happening. Is it because it was a suggested edit on my own post, or why would this be?

I honestly am sorry if this is seen as a sort of broad question, I might have not gone in depth enough for me to be able to receive a good question, but that would be my fault entirely.

    $\begingroup$ When someone suggests an edit on a post which you have written, you may unilaterally accept or decline the edit. You don't need access to the queues to deal with your own posts. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I am closing this question because it is a question about StackExchange in general, and not Math StackExchange specifically. It has been answered on the main meta site. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Your level of detail above is fine. Enough to work out why you were notified and not an overwhelming "wall of text". $\endgroup$
