I used to be able to edit peoples posts. I want to do it again (to change the $\mathcal P$ to $\wp$ in the thread) can someone fix this please?

    $\begingroup$ Since the site graduated I think the reputation levels required to do some actions have increased, no? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ More precisely, the power alluded to in the question went from a 1000 rep threashold to a 2000 rep one. Notice that you also can no longer vote to close or re-open questions, which now takes 3000 (instead of 500). $\endgroup$ Oct 30, 2010 at 11:45

    $\begingroup$ @Willie: That's strange -- the increase function isn't monotonic?! $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Rahul: No, it isn't. The SE people have a justification for this. I don't quite remember it, but it has something to do with how in the Beta stage they want it to be more democratic so the tone/level of the website best approach what potential users want. $\endgroup$ Nov 1, 2010 at 12:28

Graduated sites have higher reputation requirement to access privileges. In particular, you need 2,000 rep for editing, where now you only have 1,820.

The privileges page https://math.stackexchange.com/privileges for how far you are away from reaching the needed rep.

See Promotion implies higher rep needed for privileges, and nobody has such on this site for a discussion on this issue.
