This Java command-line app gives you access to the Suggested Edits queue using the Stack Exchange 2.0 API. It is ideally suited for users in the 2000 <= reputation < 5000 range.


java -jar SuggestedEdits-XXXXXXXX/SuggestedEdits.jar <site> [duplicates_file]


Access to the suggested-edits queue is typically earned after you cross the 5000 rep threshold even though you're technically able to approve or reject suggested-edits (after crossing 2000 rep). This program is my silly little attempt at evening the playing field.

Hint: There should be nothing stopping you from getting the Proofreader badge ;)


Source code as well as binaries are released under the Apache License Version 2.0 (full details here).

Download Packages


Being a Java command-line app, pretty much any system with a functional Java Runtime Environment should have no issues running this program.


Please report issues on the Github issue tracker. Patches are preferred as Github pull requests. Please use topic branches when sending pull requests rather than committing directly to master in order to minimize unnecessary merge commit clutter.

Please go through the README on Github for the full documentation including build instructions.

    @oers Unfortunately no, I haven't added proxy support. But the source code is available so you're welcome to have at it :) Commented Feb 9, 2012 at 13:56
  • I just downloaded this, and it works great! One thing I noticed: Leaving out the optional [duplicates_file] parameter causes the program to throw a NullPointerException. So this works: java -jar SuggestedEdits.jar stackoverflow dupes.txt, but leaving off " dupes.text" causes the error. Commented Apr 20, 2012 at 13:16

    @jadarnel27: I don't get it; On Physics.SE, I can view and review the suggested edits at 2k rep, without installing this.

    @dimensio1n0 You can now. Back when suggested edits were first introduced, you couldn't; jadarnel27's comment had that context. Commented Feb 24, 2014 at 10:15
  • All of the download links seem to be broken. Commented Dec 11, 2014 at 19:51
