@radp, huh, when'd they roll that widget out? –  Pops Oct 4 '10 at 13:39
    
@Pop: waffles deployed it a few days ago. –  Andy E Oct 4 '10 at 13:43
    
@radp - if you click for a description of the abilities it's a little... lacking. :) –  user27414 Oct 4 '10 at 13:44

@Jon B: I think they're wiki - I get an edit wiki link on meta but not on SO. –  Andy E Oct 4 '10 at 13:46

waffles set it so anyone with 2000 rep on meta can edit them, and then they're going to get mirrored everywhere else once they're all written –  Michael Mrozek Oct 4 '10 at 13:47

Yes, there's a reputation limit. You need 2000 reputation to edit regular posts and 500 to retag, or 100 to edit posts marked Community Wiki. See the FAQ for more details.

This depends on the SE site you are talking about. For SO the answer is given, with 2000 to edit other peoples' questions and 100 for cw. Yet other sites, even depending on there stage in live, have other requirements.

See here for the numbers. And the widget SE-site\abilities that @radp pointed out works on all sites.
