When I was reviewing a question today, I tried to make some changes to the title and content of the question. This is something I have done before with no problem, but this time I ran into an error message:
This edit would have to be a suggested edit.
As I have less than 2000 reputation points, I have always done suggested edits; I lack permissions to do anything but.
What is this error message? It is useless to me,
Could it be related to the fact that I am so close to 2000 points? Has the suggested edit functionality been changed with the recent overhaul of closing/holding questions? Is there supposed to be a checkbox saying this is a suggested edit? I'm just throwing out possible avenues; I really have no idea what the problem is.
A google search for the exact error message string come back with 0 results, though I suspect in a few minutes there will be a single result for this question. This leads some credence to the error being a new backend change (and probably a bug at that), since no one else has run into it yet.
Edit: Now when I go to that specific question, the
edit button is disabled. It isn't disabled for other questions, though. Even on a closed (duplicate) question with a user that has reputation 1, I have an active
edit button. What is unique about that question?
Edit 2: The question has been edited by someone else, and I now could edit the question if I so choose. Does the suggested edit functionality get disabled if a user with > 2000 reps starts to edit a question?
