Why don't I see an edit button under questions?

I can't see the edit option under the posts. Did I reach a limit or something? Is there a maximum pending edit request size?

  • There is a maximum size on the edit queue, but it's not there at the moment. I think there's a per day limit for editors though too. – Flexo Jun 19 '12 at 16:18

    You should check the feedback on your recent suggested edits, which have been rejected. – Tim Stone Jun 19 '12 at 16:20
  • Is there a place specefic for edits ? or is it just in activity? – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jun 19 '12 at 16:21

Looking through your edit history quite a few have been rejected for being too minor. A series of rejected edits causes a temporary block on new edits.

    @pha - You can see who rejected your edits - stackoverflow.com/users/1063093/phadaphunk?tab=activity - click on the suggested edit link to see a review of the edit and it's status. – Lix Jun 19 '12 at 16:23
  • @PhaDaPhunk - I don't think there's a direct way of answering that (possibly a mod can look), but the edit queue is not full at the moment – Flexo Jun 19 '12 at 16:24
  • Thanks a lot ! Hope I won't be locked for a long period -_-' – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jun 19 '12 at 16:25
  • @PhaDaPhunk - the linked question suggests it's a week. For what it's worth adding a more helpful message than "improved formatting" would be worth doing. I normally itemise the changes, justifying the ones that might be misinterpreted and link to the faq on signatures if I remove one. – Flexo Jun 19 '12 at 16:27
  • a week.. thats overkill but anyway thanks a lot – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jun 19 '12 at 16:31

Another possibility is that the suggested edit queue is full - there can be a maximum of 200 suggested edits at any one time.

At the time of posting this answer this limit has not yet been reached so that is not the problem in this case but that is valid possibility.


If you do not see the edit button, this could mean that there is a suggested edit pending and you do not have the privileges to approve suggested edits.
