The other day, I saw an off-topic post and voted to close it, even though I'm still at 101 rep on the main site. Didn't think much of it until today when I was on another public beta SE site where I also had 101 rep and was unable to vote to close a question.

If you compare the faq on mechanics with the one here, you'll see the values are different. I assume it's a bug, but feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm going to miss my close hammer....


We have bumped the privs up for public beta levels.


Now you see it, now you don't! (:

Good catch. The privileges were indeed still on private beta levels. These levels are for the first week of a new site when nobody has any rep. Since Homebrewing was an old SE 1.0 import, a few things at the beginning were fudged a bit, and this step got missed.

(You can compare the different rep levels if you want...)

The privileges have been adjusted to the proper levels as shown in the faq

  • yup... no more close hammer. Thanks! :) It still looks like the faq is incorrect to me, though, even with a hard-refresh using Ctrl-F5.
