    It seems that we need both a proposed floor and a proposed formula. I like 5k for the floor so the user gets some time to use the close power before getting access to the lists. – dmckee --- ex-moderator kitten Apr 20 '11 at 13:41
  • @dmckee: I spent a minute thinking about the formula. But, without knowing how flag weights are calculated it isn't worth spending more time on it. – user1228 Apr 20 '11 at 13:46
  • FYI: This question meta.stackexchange.com/questions/92319/… also relate the same issue. Take a look (don't know if it is duplicate or would need a merge here?) – M'vy May 22 '11 at 23:22
  • @Marc: am curious, did anything come of the discussion? – razlebe Aug 26 '11 at 21:48
  • @raz it's a pretty radical subversion of the 10k privilege, and there's the issue of how to notify the users they have it, etc. – Jeff Atwood Aug 31 '11 at 6:57
  • @jeff - thanks. The notification issue aside, is it infeasible to e.g. allow high flag weight users access to the flag handling tools alone? I can well understand that it might be a considerable amount of work. – razlebe Aug 31 '11 at 7:31

Considering the "Deputy × 243" statistic, I agree with this. How many 10K user are in stackoverflow? if you know?

Edit: statistics for the records (20th of May 2011)

Ran from https://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/s/1249/count-the-number-of-deputy-with-less-than-10k-reputation

Deputy                                : 319
Deputy with less than 10K             : 172 (54%)
Deputy with less than 10K and >= 1K   : 142 (44%)
Deputy with less than 10K and >= 1,5K : 121 (38%)
Deputy with less than 10K and >= 2K   : 104 (32%)
Deputy with less than 10K and >= 3K   : 78  (24%)
Deputy with less than 10K and >= 5K   : 41  (12%)

  • Apologise, it was @Will linking, but I bet the same result come from the same site :P. BTW there is also the average reputation in the query. – M'vy Apr 20 '11 at 14:16
