I notice that you need 4000 rep to edit tag wikis, but DBA is relatively new; I don't think we have anyone yet who can do this, so we are essentially wiki-less and may be for a few more months. There was a period, for example, where there simply weren't enough of us who could vote to close off-topic or otherwise unsuitable questions. Was this a policy decision that new sites shouldn't have wikis until they reach a critical mass? Or can we tweak this a bit?


If the edit is suggested, there are still the moderators who can approve them. – jcolebrand Feb 10 '11 at 17:15

As part of the new suggested edits and review feature, every registered user should be able to suggest an edit to tag wikis.

Are you not seeing an edit link?

I don't understand what the 4000 is for then? – Gaius Feb 10 '11 at 16:25
@Gaius, That is the full privilege - at that level you'd be able to edit a tag wiki without it going into a queue to be peer-reviewed before being accepted. – Rebecca Chernoff Feb 10 '11 at 16:28
OK cool - so who can do the review, anyone or just the >4000 users? – Gaius Feb 10 '11 at 17:17
@Gaius, it is in the links I posted. (: – Rebecca Chernoff Feb 10 '11 at 17:26
Thanks Rebecca! – Gaius Feb 10 '11 at 20:02
