I was going to retag a question but it didn't have the link. Also the edit link was grayed out. It is 31 minutes old and I have they are there on other questions. What situations does this happen in?

    It probably had a pending suggested edit.

    Other situations: full suggested edit queue, temporary edit ban because of too many rejected edits. Jul 19 '12 at 19:41
  • It came back now but it was stackoverflow.com/questions/11567632/… maybe because jumpnett was editing it, though it shouldn't have taken more than a few seconds to add the one tag he did :S

    @Celeritas That had to be approved, that took a couple of minutes. stackoverflow.com/suggested-edits/322861 Jul 19 '12 at 20:01

Hover over it. The link will tell you.

It's in the hovertext. :) As mentioned in the comments, it can happen for many reasons, most likely the edit queue is full. The link used to be removed completely, but a recent feature change leaves it on the page, greyed out.
