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

The faq clearly states that you need 2000 reputation to edit someone else's question, however I just saw a question edited by someone with 1043 reputation ( Is the faq wrong?

Clearly stated on the FAQ: 500 - Retag questions – random Dec 7 '09 at 7:59
Well the OP obviously misread/misunderstood the FAQ, no need for a down-vote yea? Whether editing or re-tagging, the text is the same, i.e "edited xx mins ago". Unless one clicks to view the revision, we can't really tell it is content editing or just tag editing. – o.k.w Dec 7 '09 at 8:12
Which is quicker, clicking the Edited by link or asking a question? (The latter) How about the user has ~700+ rep on SO and should also be seeing retag option on questions now? – random Dec 7 '09 at 8:19
Actually, I've never (until now) realized the "x minutes ago" was clickable and gave you a nice editing history. I'm learning more from this question than I expected. – user140008 Dec 7 '09 at 8:23
Well, if a user didn't realise something is click-able or what's the click is for, it might be an usability issue. I'm not saying this is the case, just felt the down-vote is rather 'harsh'. – o.k.w Dec 7 '09 at 8:34

No. At 500 rep you can edit tags.

Didn't realize retaggin spawned the edited by doodle. – user140008 Dec 7 '09 at 8:10

The person just edited the tags. This requires less than 2k reputation (only 500).
