Normally, on a per-site meta, the suggested edit button is grayed out with a message that says that suggested edits are not permitted on meta sites:

However, when manually typing the URL to suggest an edit, the message does not match:

As you can see, the messages are different. The one on the manual edit URL should be changed to be the same as on the tooltip.

    Is there any way to reach the wrong message except typing it in manually?

  • Maybe a userscript adds a link in, or an API-based app looks at it and displays it in the app upon triggering a programmatic access?

    @DanielBeck does that make a difference? This is minor, obviously, but a bug nevertheless since it is an inconsistency.

    Probably status-wontfix on this, as you have to manually play with the URL in order to trigger it, but passed it along.
