Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

The data explorer has many queries, but I can't seem to be able to extend a query that's already there.
If I see a nice query that I want to extent I have to duplicate it and save a copy, adding to the noise on data explorer.

Why isn't data explorer more like the rest of stack*.com, where I can edit stuff, and vote to keep or rollback edits.

Or am I missing something?

There are no edit rights because there is no privileges system on SEDE. There is an admin role, but I think that's hard coded in the database right now. – Jon Seigel May 21 '11 at 14:18

You cannot edit queries that are not yours.

But you can click "fork query" to make a new copy of it and eventually improve it. Then save it into your query pool.

-1 I know that it says so in the question, I want to be able to edit whatever query and if 5 people vote on that then the query is changed. – Johan May 21 '11 at 10:40
The query does NOT belong to you. I don't want anybody changing queries I use for my own sake. Maybe edit suggestion could be a good idea. – M'vy May 21 '11 at 10:51
