An AutoEdit is an automatically approved [[Edit]]. Such an edit does not go to a vote: that is, the change is immediately applied, and the edit is marked as approved (using an <small>Autoedit</small> notice).

The only Edits which are automatically applied for users with normal priviledges are:
 
* [[Add TR Ms Edit|AddTRMsEdit]] - Submitting [[TRM]]s with the [[Classic Tagger|ClassicTagger]].
 
* [[Add PUI Ds Edit|AddPUIDsEdit]] - Submitting [[PUID]]s with the [[Picard Tagger|PicardTagger]].
 
* [[Add Disc ID Edit|AddDiscIDEdit]] - By looking up a unknown disc with the [[Classic Tagger|ClassicTagger]] or [[Picard Tagger|PicardTagger]].
 
* Name or Title edits that only change the case or accents.
 
* [[Add Artist Annotation Edit|AddArtistAnnotationEdit]]
 
* [[Add Release Annotation Edit|AddReleaseAnnotationEdit]]
 
* [[Remove Artist Edit|RemoveArtistEdit]]
 
 
While it may seem surprising that [[Remove Artist Edit|RemoveArtistEdit]] is an AutoEdit, MusicBrainz only allows artists with ''no'' releases, relationships and [[Non-Album Tracks|NonAlbumTracks]] associated with them to be removed, so the only data that might be lost are the artist name and sortname, and its aliases.

An AutoEdit is an automatically approved Edit. Such an edit does not go to a vote: that is, the change is immediately applied, and the edit is marked as approved (using an Autoedit notice). The EditType page details which edits are applied as AutoEdits. Basically, EditTypes that do not result in a possible LossOfData are AutoEdits for AutoEditors (i.e. most edits apart from RemoveReleaseEdit, MergeReleasesEdit, MergeArtistsEdit etc.)
