Now that we have the revisions system mostly wrapped up, content moderators will now notice some options on the bottom of an "edit" page. As this section states, you should always choose "Create new revision, no moderation". Edits made by content moderators will turn into revisions (revisions are reversible) and will no longer need to be approved. Shortly, I will open up editing to all basic users. Testing and tweaking is still underway. Thanks for being patient guys!
