I had wanted to edit this question to remove the signature in accordance with this policy (which has since been taken care of by zpletan). However, I was unable to do so. Since I only have 1,269 reputation, I understand that my edits must be approved before being visible to other users. That's not the problem. (After all, zpletan has only 761 reputation.) The problem was that I could not edit it at all--there was no edit link. And I have edited other people's posts before (subject to approval before being viewable)...
Now that zpletan's has edited the post and I have reloaded the page, I have an edit link. But reloading the page before that did not give me one. (I am using Chromium 15.0.874.106 (Developer Build 107270 Linux), provided by
15.0.874.106~r107270-0ubuntu0.11.10.1, on Lubuntu 11.10.)
Was the reason I could not edit because zpletan had already submitted his/her edit, which was pending approval? If so, then wouldn't it be better to say something like "an edit is already pending" rather than simply not to show the edit link at all? Would the current behavior be considered a bug?
