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, EditType
s that do not result in a possible LossOfData are AutoEdit
s for AutoEditor
s (i.e. most edits apart from RemoveReleaseEdit, MergeReleasesEdit, MergeArtistsEdit etc.).
