Discussed in this meta answer was a suggested rewording to the edit page to make it less scary for new users. The current wording of "You do not have edit privileges." may put new users off, as (IMO) it sounds too much like "You cannot do this!"
A friendlier alternative settled upon was "Your edit will be reviewed by the community", possibly with a link to a page explaining the review process, including things like attribution and the reputation benefits.
This ticket mainly here as a reminder, at waffles request. :)
