I'm referring to this question, which may have been deleted by now.

I thought something like 2000 points were needed.

  • Ok, I see, if it's just tags, I could have done that (on SO), and I have in the past ... but blimey, is that the time?? My brain must have stopped working.

  • Of all the things wrong with that post, you were curious about the tags?? :) Oct 7, 2009 at 14:28
  • @Bill, no, if I had been curious about the tags, I might have realised I could have changed 'em.

That particular user simply edited tags, which anyone is allowed to do at 500 rep. Admittedly, it's not clear until you actually view the edit details, but he would not be allowed to edit the actual content at that rep. The FAQ details all the rep levels for perform various actions.


You only need 500 reputation to edit tags, which is what the user did. If you to the revision list (click on the edited link), it will show you what users have made what changes.
