Has something odd happened to the "tag wiki" reputation limit? Having just ticked over 5000, I looked at my reputation page and saw that I had 50% of the rep to get moderator tools, and 25% of the rep required to edit tag wikis. Mouseover says that now requires 20000 reputation, but I vaguely recall it needing 2000 when last I looked. Has an extra zero crept into a config file anywhere?

  • I don't know if that's a mistake or not but I can approve edits to tag-wikis, maybe it's just a double check system... makes sense to have two sets of eyes on those anyway.

  • If it's 20K to make unapproved edits and everything else subject to approvals like for 1-rep users editing that kinda makes sense

It is 20k to make unapproved edits, as noted by voretaq7.

All other edits must be voted and approved.

    Thanks, Jeff; is that a recent change, or am I just losing my memory?

    shouldn't this be marked status-bydesign?
