The 'edit' button has inconsistent behavior across devices when the suggested

On a desktop, the 'edit' button will be grayed out.

Desktop site: Edit button grayed out

On the mobile site, the edit button will be missing entirely.

Mobile site: Edit button missing

On the mobile app, the edit button has no indicator the queue is full. Users will not know the edit queue is full until clicking "submit" to save their changes.

Mobile app: No error shown until submitting changes

This inconsistent behavior can be very confusing from a user's perspective. When the edit queue is full, the edit button should be either be grayed out or show a message when clicked on all platforms.
