I read in the FAQ section a table that explains reputation point requirements for each type of moderation task.

5 upvote

20 accept own answer to own questions

25 open and close own questions

50 downvote & retag other's questions

200 edit any answer & delete any comment

Do we have any extra privileges (moderation tasks) if karma goes above 200 points ? If for example karma is 3000 ?

Short answer - Yes.

Notice how you need 25 karma points to close and open own questions? When one has higher karma, the person can open/close other people's questions, delete questions that are repetitive or other inappropriate, etc.

The only way to increase karma is to contribute.

This answer doesn't answer the actual query. The question is : If any additional moderating tasks generated when the karma points exceed the 200. And as I can see that you have 1500+ karma points, do you have any additional privileges from someone with karma 300 ;

With 500 karma points, you can accept any answer but beyond that, karma points are just a scoring of your contributions. I am open to suggestions however

@mether this is not included in the list (in FAQ page). One suggestion could be to add this on the list. :-) Personally I don't have any other suggestions... at least for now. If someone else knows any other additional privileges i.e 1000 karma, 2000 karma.. etc, it would be good to add them on above answer. (edit)

The FAQ IIRC is just the brief default listing and not meant to be that comprehensive. There are probably other places to list a full list but I am worried about it being out sync unless we generate it directly from the admin settings. So that would be an upstream feature request. If anyone things the values themselves need to be tweaked, let me know and I will take a look
