I've just joined a Stack Exchange site that's in beta and received the usual Association Bonus of +100, for having an account with reputation above the required level on the network.
I answered a question on the beta site and decided the question could be clarified with an edit, at which point I saw this:
I'm mainly active on Stack Overflow, and have 9k reputation, which is above the 2k limit required for edits to be applied instantly on there.
I always try to make edits that improve the post and are relatively substantial. I'm aware that this is a different site, but if a user has passed the threshold on one site in the network, does that not imply that they understand how edits work?
I'm not making this a feature request as I guess that allowing privileges on separate sites could get messy when the required reputation threshold hasn't been met, I'm just curious on what people thought.
Are there other reasons that this wouldn't work across sites that I've not considered?
