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

The description page for the "Edit questions and answers" privilege claims:

Once you have this privilege, the edit link will appear under each post.

I have seen and made use of this edit link long before I got to 2000 reputation, and after I reached 2000 reputation just now, I still see the same link. I guess this text is outdated and needs an edit.

The text is changed into:

The edit link is available under each post.

As that being a valid answer to the question "How do I edit posts?" and not conflicting anymore with lower reputation, I suppose this bug is solved.

I do not see the change on the description page. Are you sure there is not a misunderstanding here? – Erwin Brandstetter Oct 25 '11 at 7:13
Oh, that's strange. On meta it's changed. I will update the answer. – NGLN Oct 25 '11 at 7:16
That is the nature of the reported bug. :) You probably missed the stackoverflow tag. – Erwin Brandstetter Oct 25 '11 at 7:18
@ErwinBrandstetter I've updated it on meta, it'll be sync'd to the rest of the network soon. Ed: Huh, that's weird. It's not yet propogated. – Sathya Oct 25 '11 at 9:24
Answer rolled back. Credits are for Sathya. – NGLN Oct 27 '11 at 2:32
