Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I just saw this meta question and thought it needed further editing (starting with the title). I wanted to edit it, but the edit link was disabled. Why?

Possibly related change. "When a registered user (< 2k rep) cannot suggest an edit we will gray out the edit link instead of removing it. The tooltip text will explain why an edit cannot be suggested." – Michael Petrotta Jul 14 '12 at 6:42
I edited it, then realized how bad the title was and suggested another that hasn't been reviewed yet – simchona Jul 14 '12 at 6:42
Thank you Michael. I'm on an iPad right now, so I couldn't see the tooltip. – bfavaretto Jul 14 '12 at 6:44

There is a pending edit for that post.

Makes sense. So I don't see the indicator because I don't have edit privileges on Meta. I got so used to them on SO, that I didn't even think of that. – bfavaretto Jul 14 '12 at 6:42
The edit has been approved now. – Martijn Pieters Jul 14 '12 at 6:42
