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

I have been able to edit SO posts which I thought needed little changes to make the question stand out. Within the last few days, I have not been able to see the edit link to amend other member's posts.

All I can think of is that someone with a huge reputation has decided to block me from doing this, unless there is a maximum number of edits one can make in SO, if so can someone point me to this reference please.

What is your SO rep? Do you have to suggest edits or do you have full edit rights? – Belinda Sep 20 '11 at 8:36
I was having suggest edits. – Bitmap Sep 20 '11 at 8:46

The most likely explanation is that a lot of your suggested edits were rejected. If that happens you can't suggest edits for a while.

If you find a post where an edit you suggested was accepted, go to the edit history of that post and click the suggested link you will see a summary of how many edits were approved and how many were rejected.
