I'm reviewing a first post (question) and saw that the question was poorly spelled and formatted so I attempted an edit. I edited the the title, the post and the tags, and filled the edit summary. I then noticed that "Save Edit" is disabled.

What is the reason for the disabled link? Is this a matter of insufficient rep? I don't have the edit privilege yet, but I was able to go into edit mode. Maybe some required field was missing? I'm not sure, but I think that some tooltip on the disabled "save Edit" link would help figuring out what's wrong.


When I access the question directly (not through review), and click edit, the Save Edit link is enabled.

Here are some screenshots:

  • I guess the behaviour of the GUI has changed a little since this question was asked : today I was reviewing a First Post and started editing it, but I could click the "Save Edits" button (it wasn't disabled). But then I got the message "This would have to be a Suggested Edit". So apparently when you don't have sufficient rep for a direct edit, you cannot suggest edits when reviewing a post. But there's no way to know until AFTER carefully crafting your edit, which is a pain. – Miklos Aubert Aug 23 '13 at 10:49
