This is because IQ Meta is currently running in a "bootstrap mode".

"Bootstrap mode" relaxes the minimum required reputation to perform actions like voting and commenting. This is useful to help new communities get started.

Once enough members have built up enough Karma Points to enable IQ Meta to run under community control, I'll be switching off "bootstrap mode" to minimize the risk of the site being targeted by spammers, trolls etc.


I switched off "bootstrap mode" some weeks ago after spammers started taking an interest in IQ Meta.

Karma, lol. Seems fitting somehow. On StackOverflow there used to be someone who would deliberately irritate the community members by calling it EXP instead of Reputation. Programmers are a pedantic lot. :) Just noticed that you can edit comments in OSQA. That is a really nice feature. Looks like you're going to get some of the StackExchange 2.0 features for free.

How is the data migration going? I suspect that will be the most difficult aspect (except maybe for the styling). Is Herzmeister helping you with this?

There is an existing SE 1.0 data migration tool (one of the major reasons for using OSQA) and I will be setting up a clean, separate test instance of OSQA with a IQ database export to check if it works okay. Others who have already used it in the past don't seem to have reported any major issues with it so I'm hopeful it won't be too painful. But obviously, I won't know for sure until I've tried a full import. Re: Helpers - After having looked through the OSQA support forum, I figured this might be something I could do myself so haven't got anyone else helping at the moment. Going okay so far
