Why can't I edit other people's posts?

steve_dunn August 1, 2019

A Q&A site is a success based on the content in it.  That content is provided by the community of users.

The content should also be governed by the same community of users.

But I can't even edit any posts.

Some users are not as careful in wording or formatting, and having a Q&A site full of grammar errors, spelling errors, formatting issues etc. etc. will be a jarring experience.

May I suggest looking at StackOverflow and just do what they do.  You'll be on to a winner!

OK, apparently I can, but I need 500 points.  I surprised that:

* it's not that clear in the product

* that nobody here answered this question

It seems this community is quite sparse and that the product itself doesn't really have much momentum behind it.  Or is it just me?

Just found out that it's in a 'reputation feature' that isn't enabled by default...?
