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.

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
