Missing edit link?

I was trying to edit a post on SO, which was very badly formatted. After I submitted the edit, I was redirected to the 404 page. Thinking that the owner must have removed the post while I was editing, I checked in the new queue and still was able to see the post.

The edit link was missing.

Is this because there were close votes or flags on the question?

Question in question: Android Unicode characters incorrect

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

If the edit link was missing it means that there were pending edits. – ChrisF Dec 7 '11 at 14:15

There were pending edits and you did not have enough rep to approve or reject it.
