What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

Missing edit link?

I clicked the edit link on this question only to be bounced to the 'Page Not Found' page. When I browsed back to the question, it was still there, but without an edit link: Question Without edit Link

Other questions appeared with edit links: Question With edit Link

After a minute or so, the edit link reappeared, along with a note that another user had recently edited the question: Original Question With edit Link

Just to clarify, does one user's edit block other edits from beginning? Does this only happen to users with < 2,000 rep (like me)? Is this is the FAQ or docs somewhere (I have not found it myself)?

@ChrisF Yes, this seems to be the case. I did not find that post before posting. Apologies for the duplicate. – Andrew Kozak Nov 30 '11 at 17:47
Don't apologise - duplicate are hard to find. I only knew it existed because I asked the same question. – ChrisF Nov 30 '11 at 19:45

Yes, when you have <2k and there is a pending edit, you are blocked from editing.

As for the page not found, the edit was probably submitted between you loading the page and hitting edit.
