When sites go public, we're going to need people who can vote to close / migrate questions, especially considering the overlap between this site and others.
In order for that to happen, several people are going to need to garner enough reputation for the system to trust them enough to do that, within 7 days. Otherwise, moderators are going to be doing what the community should be doing.
Can we either extend the private beta to allow sufficient time for people to hit 3k, or perhaps relax the daily rep limit so that when the site goes into public beta, at least a few people will be (close to being) able to cast such votes?
Or, perhaps this is by design?
I'm not suggesting getting rid of the daily rep cap on all sites. I'm just wondering how members of the community can earn enough reputation in seven days to be able to effectively manage the site once its public, this is my first private beta :)
Apparently this has been addressed, which is why I also asked if this was by design.
