Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

If you try and edit a Meta post on a site where you don't have the Edit Anywhere privilege, you get this message:

It should actually read non community wiki.

Huh? Suggested edits can only be made on tag wikis on per-site metas. You gain the ability to edit community wiki posts at 100 reputation, which occurs instantly for anyone with 200 reputation on a linked SE account.

In that case I'm still not sure why it's referring to suggested edits; most people don't know WTF a tag wiki is and they're not really "posts" as otherwise defined by the system (post= question/answer). It makes much more sense to say "suggested edits are not allowed on meta questions/answers". The tag wiki bit is just something extra to be confused about – Ben Brocka Aug 22 '12 at 2:12
WTH do tag-wikis have to do with non-community posts? – YatharthROCK Sep 22 '12 at 13:53
@BenBrocka Exactly! I asked a question here (now closed) too. They should really remove the tag-wiki part – YatharthROCK Sep 22 '12 at 13:54
On meta sites without the editing privilege, you can not even suggest edits on any non CW posts. I think that the tooltip is therefore indeed incorrect. – Rory May 18 '13 at 9:48
@Rory: "Suggested edits are not allowed on non-tag-wiki posts." - It makes no mention of any other type of post. That statements simply means you can only suggest edits on tag wikis. A question or answer, whether CW or not, is not a tag wiki. – animuson May 18 '13 at 13:56
@animuson Ohh I'm with you now, it still seems an odd message to display when you're no where near the tag-wiki at the time though – Rory May 18 '13 at 14:39
