The website says that anyone with karma > 750 can edit wiki posts. However, while I have enough karma, I don't see how I can edit wiki posts. There are no 'edit' or similar buttons/links. I wonder if there are more restrictions which is not clear.

The board currently has some anti-spam measures in place. There has been a heavy spate of spam postings recently, and until the systems are in place to deal with it automatically it looks like the this will continue.

There is a little more information on this thread:

Well, sorry, the anit-spam measures are disabled but I still cannot edit wiki posts!
