Since the beta sites have a much smaller user group then any of the major ones, would it be a good idea to have a more relaxed privilege system? Such that you gain privileges earlier when you reach set reputation levels. Possibly only while the site is still in its infant stages to be decided by the stackexchange mods when it is mature enough to switch to the normal system?
I think this would be a good idea as long as it is not overly relaxed to the point where people who are new to stack exchange aren't given privileges that they don't fully understand. I feel this would make the tasks only allowed to users with higher reputations easier since more people would be given the privileges. Spreading out the burden in a matter of speaking.
Anyone got any ideas about this?
