Does Askbot provide functions for users to edit other users' posts like on Stack Overflow / StackExchange? I am not seeing any such functions, but that could be down to me not having enough reputation yet.

Yes, there is a community wiki checkbox in the "ask" and "answer" forms just underneath the textarea for the post body. If you are indeed missing it - could you make it known as that would indicate a bug in html (I've never seen this though - I'm editing this in IE 6 from a hotel business center :) - mostly looks ok with notable exceptions).

@Evgeny cheers, the checkbox is there. I meant something else, the "Wiki" point was a bit misleading. What I meant was, are users with a certain reputation able / allowed to edit other people's questions and answers?

My answer answered itself: It *is* possible, I just saw your "ISP" post that is fully editable.

this post is marked as community wiki

This post is a wiki. Anyone with karma >100 is welcome to improve it.

Just adding a community wiki test page to show how we can use it ;-)

Only anyone with karma >100 is able to improve it.

Yes, but this karma minimum is adjustable from the settings.
