The "community bulletin" section of a site usually contains featured meta posts. It can also contain community events, which are essentially calendar entries. These aren't widely used, but one of my sites uses them on a weekly (or more-than-weekly) basis.
Currently these events can be created and edited only by moderators. Editing recurring events is quite tedious, and it would sure be nice if the community could help.
I propose extending this to high-rep users -- I'm thinking 15k, to add something to the privilege level that currently grants only question protection, but I'm open to other options.
Currently what happens is stuff like this:
@msh210 @MonicaCellio Can we please get some featured tags? Right now, parashat-nitzavim and perhaps rosh-hashanah-new-year too. (source)
devorim should be featured. Probably nine-days or tisha-bav as well. (source)
@mods What happened to the weekly parsha events? They've been AWOL for a few weeks already. (source)
(There's more, but you get the idea.)
Can we please not make community events wholly the responsibility of moderators? Can we come up with a way for community members to help? I had initially proposed letting community members edit these directly, because the community can audit, the scope of damage is limited, and no PII is involved, but Isaac makes a good point: mod approval would still be a good idea. But can we come up with a way for interested community members to do the heavy lifting?
I don't see a down-side and, for sites that use events, I see plenty of up-side.
