Based on a few recent suggestions, I have made some changes to users and points:
- The threshold for users getting editing privileges has been lowered to 6,000. This means that Halcyonic Falcon, Wobbuffet33 and Sam Sam Sam Sam can now edit posts again. Mew is not far off :)
- The "Editors" group is back (different from above), and they can now hide posts. I have made Speed Freak, PB-10 and J98 editors on a trial period, as they are very active and the only top users not already mods. Remember: only hide posts that break the rules. If you're not sure, either flag it or just leave it alone :)
- I have left the mods as they are for now, but I'll see how things go with the new Editors if we need more people with banning powers.
- I have reduced the points for selecting best answer from 4 to 2. I may remove it entirely later, but I thought this is a nice compromise for now. A couple of the top users lost about 400 points but everyone else only lost a small amount.
And as mentioned in various other questions there is a little more security now to try and prevent banned users from returning.
