Why don't I see an edit button under questions?
I temporarily lost the ability to edit questions or answers on Stack Overflow, the link was simply missing. It's not for a couple of posts that have pending edits as I've had a browse around and it is universal.
My current edit stats are:
Alex Hadley had 96 edit suggestions approved, and 6 edit suggestions rejected.
Which seems reasonable to me.
My questions are:
- What are the factors that determine this sort of suspension of permissions?
- What can one do to improve the situation in the future, and avoid such 'suspensions'?
- How long do they normally last?
- And also, is it possible for additional information to be provided when this occurs?
Note, this was only a temporary issue, but the question is still interesting I believe.
