Currently in this answer of question 226923 I am seeing that there is no link to edit the answer, whereas just below that answer I can see that there is link to edit that answer.

Both answers are answered at almost same time with the difference of 4 minutes.

  • As far as I can see, this is no duplicate of the linked question, and I would be interested in knowing the answer to the original question...

Quoting directly from Missing edit link?

There are many options here:

  1. You are not logged on and the post is 10 minutes old or less
  2. There is already a pending edit on this post
  3. The queue is full, only happens rarely on new SE sites with no moderators
  4. You have been banned for a week cause you submitted many rejected edits

Options 2, 3 and 4 only apply if you have less than 2,000 reputation.
