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.

    $\begingroup$ Well, that is due to graduation, where the reputation limits are higher than on the beta sites. I believe, this will make the transition for the moderator a little bit harder, since there are less user with the appropriate privileges, and raising flags will probably increase. $\endgroup$ May 14 '15 at 12:41
  • $\begingroup$ The "graduated" totals can be found here. Hopefully, the increasing traffic will lead to increasing votes and make it easier to move up. $\endgroup$ May 14 '15 at 13:15

    $\begingroup$ But keep it up and you'll break 3k in no time at all. :-) $\endgroup$ May 14 '15 at 13:16

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.

Among the cheering, there was the sound of the global Chem.SE community cracking knuckles (I think the USGS got nervous), as graduation moves the threshold goal-posts further, the hard working community has stepped up to meet the challenge!
