The description page for the "Edit questions and answers" privilege claims:

Once you have this privilege, the edit link will appear under each post.

I have seen and made use of this edit link long before I got to 2000 reputation, and after I reached 2000 reputation just now, I still see the same link. I guess this text is outdated and needs an edit.

The text is changed into:

The edit link is available under each post.

As that being a valid answer to the question "How do I edit posts?" and not conflicting anymore with lower reputation, I suppose this bug is solved.

  • I do not see the change on the description page. Are you sure there is not a misunderstanding here? Oct 25, 2011 at 7:13
  • Oh, that's strange. On meta it's changed. I will update the answer.

    @ErwinBrandstetter I've updated it on meta, it'll be sync'd to the rest of the network soon. Ed: Huh, that's weird. It's not yet propogated. Oct 25, 2011 at 9:24
