What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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
