To be honest I find it hard to keep up with all the changes, and very frequently I have to go look at the privileges list to see whether a user (that I'm looking at, so I have his reputation value) has a certain privilege or not.
However, I still don't know what that user will actually see or how the site actually behaves for that user.
There's quite a number of posts here on meta about "where did this go" and "why can't I" and I can't really tell either way how a site behaves for a user with a reputation level of 2500.
So, I propose the following functionality:
- For all users, be able to view the site as though you had less reputation than you actually have
- Bonus-feature: For all users, be able to use the site at that reputation level, unless some features of low-level users conflict with your actual functionality
- For mods, be able to view the site as a specific users (be able to see all he sees, exactly the way he sees it), but of course not pose as that user (ie. things I do would still be me)
The UI could be merged into the mod menu and the privileges menu:
(Note, I chose a user randomly, Olivier Pons is in no way related to this question or flags, or whatever that I know of.)
