This has been discussed before, and was actioned in a way that I can't help but feel is just wrong. This is why I've created a new question, given that the previous one has the 'status completed' tag.
I would like to see a better system for handling captcha throttle thresholds on users. Currently, according to Jeff Atwood:
Some reductions in CAPTCHA throttle thresholds, if you have > 10k rep:
- for edits -- reduced by two-thirds
- for post submission times -- min seconds reduced by one half, max minutes increased by 2x
My point is that 10k reputation is waaaaay too high. As has been suggested, there should be some form of scaling involved in the threshold, rather than this system where editing/re-editing your posts confronts you with those damned loveable robots.
So, I would like to ask that you start scaling back the threshold when the user hits something lower, say 500, or 1000.
