The privilege level's seem to be fairly low to me, it doesn't look like it will take long to get a lot of users onto the higher privileges that could potentially open the site up to users damaging the site. Should we change those levels?

The current levels are: https://sitecore.stackexchange.com/help/privileges

Compare that to the Stack Overflow levels: https://stackoverflow.com/help/privileges

The privilege levels are set to a lower level during the private beta to help bootstrap the community while you build up enough reputation to perform those tasks. The privilege levels return to "normal" as a site passes from private to public beta, and then again when it graduates.
