I noticed that the "edit" option that used to be beneath a question on SO is missing? Right now it only says link|retag|flag for all questions I've clicked on.

I read this question and checked the the 4 points suggested by waffles. I can rule out point 1, 2 and 4. The only thing I can't check (don't know how to) is point 3, the edit queue. Could it be that the edit queue on SO is full?


There are many possiblities such as-

  1. You are not logged on and the post is 12 hours old or less
  2. There is already a pending edit on this post
  3. The queue is full, only happens rarely on new SE sites with no moderators
  4. You have been banned for a week cause you submitted many rejected edits

Options 2, 3 and 4 only apply if you have less than 2,000 reputation.

  • Yes, that's exactly what I meant with point 1,2 and 4 in my question. The only thing is I don't know how I can check point 3.

    @THelper i didnot have enough permission to check the edit queue, i think mods and high repo user can see it only Apr 19 '12 at 8:39
  • Moderators got little to do with the suggested edits queue - they handle flags, not approving edits. It's the lack of 10K+ members which affect. Apr 19 '12 at 8:42
  • Is there anyway of knowing if point 4 is true? And, how many is "too many" rejected edits? May 17 '12 at 7:02
