It seems to me that currently a suggested edit needs two approval (or reject) reviews (as suggested edits on Stack Overflow) while a week ago they required only one approval/reject. Why? What is behind the change?

    \$\begingroup\$ I have no idea what is the reason, but according to the history of suggested edits, this was changed on 16 October. \$\endgroup\$ – svick Oct 20 '12 at 0:26

Yes, suggested edits require two reviews since the 16th:

In response to this, we've bumped up the number of reviews required to approve or reject a suggested edit:

  • Network-wide: two reviews per edit suggestion.
  • Stack Overflow: three reviews per edit suggestion.

Moderators can approve suggested edits instantly in cases where an insufficient number of users are available to review them.
