@Mark it's on the blog :) –  badp Nov 19 '10 at 22:58
    
At what reputation can a new user begin to suggest edits? 0? Is it the same on meta? –  bmike Feb 15 '12 at 16:31
    
@bmike: Probably, since even anonymous users can suggest edits. –  Mechanical snail Dec 1 '12 at 8:27

Alternatively, see reputation tables for Stack Overflow, Server Fault, Super User, a launched SE 2.0 site, a public beta site. And Meta Stack Exchange.

Additionally:

  • every 1,000 reputation, get one bonus moderator flag per day (you start with 10; e.g. a 10ker has 20 flags).
  • Chat requirements are all based on global reputation -- except for Stack Overflow Chat and Meta Stack Overflow Chat, which only count their parent site's rep.

Also keep in mind that when a site moves from one phase to another, there are no grandfathering of privileges of any kind. You'll immediately be held to the new privileges threshold and lose any privileges you no longer quality for.

Creating a new tag on Math.SE now requires 1000 rep –  Grigory M Jan 15 at 21:13
    
What about beta SE sites? What's the rep requirement for creating new tags in beta sites? e.g. Chemistry is in beta. –  bonCodigo Aug 17 at 3:33

@bonCodigo Check out the "public beta" column. –  Anna Lear Aug 17 at 3:35
    
@AnnaLear always bulls eye. Great 150 for public beta :) –  bonCodigo Aug 17 at 3:50
