I have noticed recently, that both in meta, and in Skeptics Main, I no longer have the ability to suggest an edit.

Why can't I edit?????

Is this a site-wide thing, or is it just my account? Is there a reason this happened? Did I get edit-banned or something, or did SE decide that all users can no longer suggest edits?

Note: This is happening on every question, so I'm wondering if there is something really wrong with my account.

Edit: I realized that this must have happened recently, since I made an edit only a few weeks before the time of this posting.


Edit suggestions are disabled on meta, but you should still be able to edit on the main site. The edit link is not visible if there is already a suggested edit pending on the post, so check if you don't see the edit link anywhere on the main site.

  • I can't edit any of the questions (unless every single question on the front page has a pending suggested edit...)

  • @Ephraim Try it again, we had a huge number of tag wiki edits queued, they might have overwhelmed the edit queue and any further edit were probably blocked.

  • Yup, it works now! I guess that was the problem. Just out of curiosity though, was it just me that couldn't edit, or did this happen to everyone?

  • That was for anyone with less than 2k reputation.
