I just tried to create a tag wiki entry for jffs2, and got the following message:

Oops! Your question couldn't be submitted because:
The tag wiki edit queue is full, try again in a few minutes!

If the same "Oops!.." text is being used for all messages, then maybe it should be changed to:

"Oops! Your post couldn't be submitted because"

Or something like that?

I'm not 100% sure... but is the tag wiki edit queue different from the general edit queue in /review? I mean... even tag wiki edit suggestions appear in that list.... – Lix Jul 12 '12 at 11:19

Yes, it is a little inaccurate and should be fixed.

The term "posts" used to cover votables only (questions and answers) which is how I believe the Convention badge still uses it.

Today it covers anything editable except for comments, at least in the database:

  • Question
  • Answer
  • Wiki
  • TagWikiExcerpt
  • TagWiki
  • ModeratorNomination
  • WikiPlaceholder
  • PrivilegeWiki

I am deriving this from the database snapshot. There is a general trend towards tag wikis becoming more and more like questions and answers over time, so "post" is the right word here.
