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 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 area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/614/… - 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.
