Yesterday (local time), I made three tagwiki edits which were ultimately accepted:1

the three accepted tagwiki edits in question

Making an edit suggestion which is then reviewed and accepted is worth +2 reputation; thus, I should have gained a total of +6 reputation from those three accepted tagwiki edits.

However, I only gained reputation for one of the three (suggested edit #48673):

Why is accepted-edit reputation gain broken, and when will it get fixed?

1: I also made three which were rejected, but those do not concern us here.

You got 1,000 from edit suggestions (2 points per), that's the limit.

Sean had 502 edit suggestions approved, and 25 edit suggestions rejected

  • $\begingroup$ Why does reputation from edits have a cap? No other source of reputation does. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Sean no clue but I remembered reading it somewhere, and there it was in the help center, I'll see if they discussed it on MSE and will add a link if I find anything $\endgroup$

The best source of info here is probably this Q/A

How do suggested edits work?

And a quote for a direct answer

Can I earn reputation?

  • When a suggested edit is approved, the user who suggested it gets +2 reputation. The regular daily reputation cap applies, and the total cap for reputation gained via suggested edits is 1,000. The +2 is reversed if the edited post is ever deleted or if the final user to review one of your suggestions gets their account deleted.
  • When a suggested edit is rejected, no reputation penalty is given, though it can count towards an editing ban.
  • Once you have earned the edit privilege, your edits are no longer peer reviewed and no reputation is given for edits to posts. Similarly, once you earn the trusted user privilege, your edits to tag wikis are no longer reviewed and no reputation is given for them.

Emphasis mine, highlighting the 2 ways you no longer earn rep from suggested edits.

PS: You might want to check your edits are appropriate
