Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Since last week I am no longer able to edit questions on Stack Overflow. Is there any particular reason for this? How can I fix that issue?

It may be that you have too many suggested edits that have been rejected? On your suggestion page it shows 32 rejected out of 81 suggested. You might simply have to wait a few days before making any new suggested edits.

I suspect that the reason you've had so many edits rejected is that you've been only adding trivial tags to questions, one at a time, without making any improvements to the question body or title, with the same exact edit summary (misspelled, ironically).

Add related tag to the quetion

Many people consider this a waste of time, not an improvement, and therefore reject the edit.

For instance, this edit suggestion that was approved:

white space problem

I created web page like this. the problem is there's white spaces between the images, how to remove them

All you did was add the tag, which isn't a great retag, but it's valid. You could have improved the question much further, correcting the grammar and punctuation, and making the title more meaningful. Right now it appears that more than half of your reputation has been earned in edits, so you are creating a lot of work for other users (who must review and approve/reject the edit) with very little improvement to the site.

Yeah, I'd reject edits like that every time. You need to do more than just add tags to a question like that... Start with punctuation. – Cody Gray Aug 15 '11 at 10:04
Ja, when I see an edit suggestion that only changes one part of a post that requires lots of work I usually reject it. – Won't Aug 15 '11 at 12:55
