    You should have gotten a notification. It will appear as a message in your inbox. Whenever one of your posts is edited, you are informed. You probably just missed it.

Once you get the editing privilege, you don't have to ask permission from the person asking the question.

For what it's worth it was a good edit. He was generalizing the question to make it more useful for everyone in the future. If it becomes the canonical question for that operation for all future releases, you should be thanking him for giving you rep rockets instead of complaining...

  • When the user got this privilege ?
