This question already has an answer here:

The locked post FAQ says locked posts cannot be edited, yet Graph visualization library in JavaScript can be edited (at least, the lock message says so, and I can open the edit dialogue).

  • @AndrewT. The top answer. – muru Jan 29 '15 at 4:32
  • Sorry for the possible dupe, it seems you have read it before posting here. However, the answer also says "In the case of locked questions, the (unlocked) answers are not bounded to these (e.g. edit, voting) restrictions." – Meta Andrew T. Jan 29 '15 at 4:34
  • @AndrewT. Ah yes, so answers and questions can be separately locked? The reason I ask is that on AU we're discussing what to do with old off topic questions (like lists and polls). If the answers can be left editable, locking might be an acceptable solution. – muru Jan 29 '15 at 4:38

The question is locked. And you can't edit it.

The answers are not locked. And you can edit those.

  • Is that true of all locked posts? I think one can't vote on answers of locked posts as well, but edits are allowed? – muru Jan 29 '15 at 4:33

    There's one lock type that'll lock all answers as well as the question: the "Historical Lock". It's special in a few other ways also. All other locks just lock the post they're applied to and, for questions, prevent new answers from being added. – Shog9 Jan 29 '15 at 4:37
