What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 149 Stack Exchange communities.

I edited some questions before, but I am no longer able to click the edit button. I thought there was a problem with the specific question, but I cannot click it on any question.

What's going on?

See - meta.stackexchange.com/questions/81505/… - there are some cases where the tag wiki edit button gets removed. Maybe it's the same for post edits. –  ChrisF Mar 4 '11 at 12:01

There are a handful of conditions where we will stop accepting suggested edits:

  1. A large number of suggested edits by you were rejected in the past week (at least 5 more than one-third of your accepted edits).

  2. We are out of empty slots in the queue (currently 20 120 200)

  3. There is an edit to a particular post that was not approved yet.

  4. You are not logged in and the post is less than 10 minutes old.

  5. You are on a child meta.

In the past no "edit" link would be shown at all; since July 2012 the edit link is disabled and the mouse hover tooltip will explain why an edit cannot be suggested, like "Account is not allowed to suggest edits".

Note that edit is also disabled on meta sites you do not have 2k rep on. –  enderland Mar 10 '14 at 19:34
What do the slots (2) refer to? Is the number of slots different on other sites (like some things are different on Stack Overflow from other network sites)? –  Werner Nov 13 '14 at 1:34
@Werner I guess it's the edit suggestion review queue. –  Andrew T. Nov 13 '14 at 11:17
