If you hover the mouse pointer over your user's karma points (next to your user name at the top), it will show a list beggining with: "Currently, you can: ..."

Following @manj_k (last seen 2014-12-01) work, and with partial (and incorrect) data from this site faq, I am trying to collect an updated list of allowed activities according to user's karma.

I can see some differences, some of which I can't solve yet:

  • I can't see that 3 is a threshold.
  • Don't know if with a 5 karma I can "Answer own question immediately".
  • Don't know if with a 20 karma I can "Accept own answer to own questions", or can "Accept own answer" to anyone questions.
  • Don't know if with a 25 karma I can "Close own questions".
  • Don't know if with a 50 karma I can "Reopen own questions".

Maybe people in the infra team could tell. They "recently" installed an updated version of AskBot. This means they have access to the configuration file. This karma thing is a configuration matter. Then try to contact infra.

They "recently" installed an updated version of AskBot.

We didn't, AskBot deployment and maintenance is taken care of by AskBot upstream. But you're right that it's a configuration matter and the infra team has access to it :-)

That is, all settings are at their current default value except “upload files”.

Italics items are only in this answer list. Bold, only in the "Currently, you can: ..." list.

Karma 10 is currently not required to upload files.

A few users kindly shared with me the list that corresponded to they karma. I created a new user (that I later deleted) to see the list for karma 1.

With this data I created a double entry box. 1, 5 and 200 are confirmed data.

Gray is for no-threshold karma values.

If you participate in more than one language in the ask.libreoffice.org site, it seems that you will need to add all karma values and subtract from the total 1 for each additional language.

Any comment and shared "Currently, you can: ..." list, are welcomed.
