Editing Pause:

I seem to be getting "editing pause" messages when I try to edit Wiki pages, telling me to wait one minute before opening a page to edit. I will still get them after waiting several minutes. This doesn't happen all the time though—I've done a few back-to-back edits in a row, less than a minute apart. Is the "editing pause" message simply an indication of a busy server?

The editing pause is for new accounts, as a deterrence against vandalism. For security reasons, we will not disclose the exact mechanism by which it works, nor the duration of the new account period.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
