Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Can the required reputation (currently 2000) be lowered for the tag wiki editing?

Right now, it will take about 10 days for the first user to get to the reputation required for editing, and then only if they have a score of 100 in the tag they want to edit.

Being able to build the tag wikis right now, in the private beta, will help users understand the terminology in use once we move to public beta.1 Presumably the users in the private beta will be fairly well-versed in the topic, and having this information prepared now will make it easier as we move up in popularity.

It appears to be 1000 on the SE sites – Michael Mrozek Aug 26 '10 at 4:04
@Michael Interesting, you seem to be partially right... on UI and DIY, it's 1000 (which are both in public beta), but on Bicycles it's 2000 (which is in private beta). Maybe the private beta needs to be adjusted too? – Jared Harley Aug 26 '10 at 4:14
FWIW, we've just entered public beta on RPG and there are only three of us who can edit tag wikis at all; subjectively this feels like too few but I offer it as a data point more than anything else. – Bryant Aug 27 '10 at 14:56

Completed, any registered user can now submit edits to tag wikis
