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

I find today that I can't edit example questions on area51. I have enough rep according to the faq, but all I see are "link" and "flag".

I can edit proposals themselves, though.

Something hinky is going on here...

I can't edit my own example questions either. This cannot possibly be by design - editing for spelling/grammar at a minim must be allowed, if only for the sanity of picky readers!

This bug report has been upgraded to very hinky.

I checked many proposals, and it seems to be that same across all of them, regardless of whether I'm following it or not. The question I want to edit in particular is… - loose != lose – Adam Davis Jun 16 '10 at 17:38
Possibly related is that I can't edit my own questions; there's no edit link. I figured at the time maybe it was intentional, but it seems unlikely – Michael Mrozek Jun 16 '10 at 18:15
I fixed the spelling error. I am not entirely certain if the lack of editing is in the works or omitted by design. – Robert Cartaino Jun 16 '10 at 18:21

A change made last night made it so only moderators could edit questions. It's fixed now.
