Do we get rep added to our profile for editing questions/answers on the Beta site?

I see +2 rep points on Stack Overflow when I make edits but no here on the EE site.

My profile tab for Revisions only shows 3 revisions, but I've made a ton more edits than this on the main site. The profile preview, visible by hovering over the down arrow to the left of my name in the header, shows 0 revisions.

Once a user gains the privilege of editing posts (at 1000 rep), they no are no longer awarded reputation for edits. Up until that time any edits made by a user are moderated and, if approved, are worth +2 reputation.

  • Got it. Thank you for the clarification.
