Would it be possible to remove the reputation requirements for posting on meta for the first week, while we iron out all the login problems people are having?

We've already had a few instances of people asking via email, after they found they couldn't ask their question here.

    $\begingroup$ It seems that the exception has outlived its usefulness. Maybe we should ask to revert it. $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 12, 2018 at 14:34
  • $\begingroup$ @EmilJeĊ™ábek That sounds quite reasonable to me. Especially considering that the main site is protected from being abused by posting many similar questions by question bans after enough negatively received posts, but on meta there is no question ban. $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 15, 2018 at 4:42

1 Answer 1


Ok. I've lowered the reputation requirement here to 1 for the time being.

You'll probably want to revert to 5 at some point just to make your own lives easier, but during the transition dropping it seems like a good idea.
