I keep trying to edit meta posts (often just to see how a specific formatting thing is done) but when I click edit it just tells me:
Could it be made more obvious that the post can't be edited by me? Grey it out? Hide it completely?
The 'posts edited' statistic on my profile is greyed out so I don't see why this shouldn't be...
This above post is taken verbatim from Can the edit button be hidden if I am unable to edit? on DBA Meta; the OP there was not interested in following up on Meta Stack Exchange, but as I have also had the same thought on other sites, I brought it over for consideration.
