#6337 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

Users who can't publish pages are able to bring down helphub and devhub pages by editing them

Description

I can go to any devhub or helphub page and click "Edit" in the toolbar, and make changes.

But, I do not have the necessary privileges to do this, so when I save, the page is taken down and its post status changes to "pending review". This makes the page inaccessible and unavailable to users.

This affects the helphub, developer hub, and handbooks, it may affect other places.

I would suggest resolving this by removing the edit link for those users who can't publish, since having a pending revision for review sounds like a much more in depth feature that core itself should probably be involved in.
