How come the reputation required for participating in close votes, accepting edits etc. has been raised to 3k ? I was enjoying helping out on these, and there are not so many members with 3k+ reputation.
To make clear from the comments, we were previously a "beta" site, which has lower point totals required for different privilege levels.
We graduated, which gives us a shiny new design, and bunch of related features.
The new point totals required can be found here.
