It was once possible to edit the privileges page for everyone with more than 2k rep on Meta.SO.
I think this is a good thing:
- Moderators have other things to do.
- Wrong content can be easily fixed.
- More involvement of the community.
- The help center should be the definitive source. (Could be solved with reviews)
So could this please changed again?
The actual needed reputation doesn't matter.
Some quotes to support my request:
At the high end of this reputation spectrum there is little difference between users with high reputation and ♦ moderators. That is intentional. We don’t run this site. The community does. Source
Ehhm, yes. We run the site, and we should be able to edit the privileges page.
Moderators are human exception handlers, there to deal with those exceptional conditions that could otherwise disrupt the community. Source
Editing the privileges pages are not an exception. Again, moderators have other things to do.
An other edit
Before I accept an answer (chameleon question WHEE) I'd like to hear some reason for this change.
I would just wait for their response. This could be a temporary bug or oversight that wasn't meant to be done, or they could have some specific reasons why they changed it that we're not aware of. – animuson ♦
