The Programming Puzzles & Code Golf meta site has a sandbox for proposing new questions; as such, it has a lot of answers. If I press "Answer This Question", I get an alert warning me about the number of answers; but the alert also says please note that you can click the edit link on any of these answers to improve them.

As far as I know, that's not true for meta, so that part of the message shouldn't be there.

    sandboxes arn't really a 'feature' but a workaround. Also, meta questions could have too many answers too... in theory. Commented Apr 22, 2017 at 13:53
  • @JourneymanGeek Correct, but that's not what this issue is about though. What I'm saying is that it shouldn't be telling me that I can edit existing answers to improve them, because that's not true on meta sites. Commented Apr 22, 2017 at 14:00
  • Oh! Actually, I think you can - its suggested edits you can't do, no? Commented Apr 22, 2017 at 14:02
  • @JourneymanGeek Oh, didn't realise you could. So yes, it's only suggested edits you can't do. Commented Apr 22, 2017 at 14:05

It's suggested edits that you can't do on per site metas — if you can do edits on your own on main sites, you can do edits on the appropriate per site meta. As such, the alert isn't entirely incorrect.
