I'm editing a post, I spend a few minutes making changes, and I go to save it. I get an error message that simply says that I've made "too many recent edits". I don't even know what that means, aside from the obvious of hitting some kind of limiting cap.
- How many edits is too many? Is it per day or some other unit of time?
- When will I be able to edit again?
- Why can't I even edit my own post to make it better (I can see limiting the editing of others posts)?
- Why did I get to the edit page and be able to spend time making changes if I'll be greeted with a (useless) error message at the end?
The edit restrictions are probably global, as is the ability to reach an edit page and make changes if you can't actually publish them, but could the error message be updated? I'm not sure if that's a global thing or a site-specific thing (if it's global, perhaps kick this over to Meta.SO). The only thing I know is that the message as it's shown here on Programmers is pretty useless (which is surprising considering the clarify of other error messages and notifications).
