How many post edits can I do in a day? I think I have submitted less than 10 post edits today, but I am getting the following message:

Our edit queue is full, try again in a few minutes

What does this mean, and when can I start suggesting edits again? Have I done something wrong?

This actually has nothing to do with you, but rather because suggested edits goes into a queue (20 edits maximum I believe) waiting for others to approve them. Once this queue is full, probably because there aren't enough 10k'ers up right now, you can't make any more suggested edits.

Edit: Jeff increased this limit to 160 on SO, so the chances of this error occurring is fairly low now

Any 2k+ member can approve as far as I know, and isn't it clearing the queue as well? – Shadow Wizard May 19 '11 at 11:11
@ShadowWizard Yes, but they can't see the queue, so unless you happen to chance upon a post that just happen to have an edit, there isn't much a 2k'er can do – Yi Jiang May 19 '11 at 11:18
yup that's right, just wanted to clarify that not only 10k'ers can approve/reject suggested edits. :) – Shadow Wizard May 19 '11 at 11:23
