I just noticed that the reputation requirements for privileges are higher on gaming.stackexchange.com than on rpg.stackexchange.com. For example, Create Tags is 150 here, but 300 on Gaming, and Trusted User is 4,000 here but 20,000 on Gaming.

What's the difference? (Beta status? User count? Age?)

Can reputation requirements for privileges increase? If they do, can you lose privileges already accrued?

We are still in public beta, it has different (lower) rep requirements for privilege levels.

See this post on MSO for more information.

    \$\begingroup\$ and yes, when a site goes from beta to live, if you have enough rep for the privilege on beta, but not enough for the privilege on the live site, you will temporarily lose those privileges (e.g. with 250 rep, you'll be unable to create tags again until you break 300). \$\endgroup\$ Sep 19, 2011 at 16:47
