# Editing Rejections and Penalty Time

How many times can your edits on another persons question be rejected before it's disabled? How long is the penalty?

• This sort of question is usually best asked in Meta Stack Exchange - and it surely has been asked there already, have a good look before you post there. – Emilio Pisanty Jan 4 '16 at 17:07

When deciding on whether we should ban or not, we now look at your last 7 days of activity.

If (rejects - (approvals / 3)) >= 5, you will be auto-banned.

This thread puts the penalty at seven days of edit banning.

Both posts are fairly old, though this newer thread confirms them. The exact details might have changed slightly. This is not to say that you should go and experimentally figure out where the boundaries currently sit.
