(Maybe?) Stupid question: how can I edit a wiki entry? There is no 'edit' button anywhere...

Background: Wanted to add an LTE operator and - like in every wiki post - in the LTE post there's written: 'This post is a wiki. Anyone with karma >75 is welcome to improve it.'

As my profil shows 'karma: 83', shouldn't I be able to edit then? In case the threshold has changed, I'd suggest to update the >75 text.

Have you been logged in while trying to edit? (The "edit" option is hidden until you are logged in.)

yes, i'm logged in. where does the edit option appear? i only can see 'retag' and 'flag offensive'

The edit option should appear there along with the retag and flag offensive options. And karma limit is 75 like it says, so I'm not quite sure what's wrong here. Could you add a screenshot, just to make sure we are on the same page?

UPDATE: This should be fixed now

Did some investigation and this seems to be a bug in Askbot.

The actual karma limit for wiki editing is not checked when rendering the question controls. It only checks the generic karma limit for editing other peoples posts, and that limit is currently 200.

I'll let you know when this is fixed.

Thanks for investigation (and finding the issue:)
