Over the last few days, we have had rapid closing votes on a question, followed by reopening. Even in questions which are ostensibly off-topic, but not on careful thought (example), the closing votes have been dealt swiftly.
For a site like ours with 4 excellent grades and 1 Okay grade, is delaying the graduation out of beta harmful? More users with fewer points may have the privileges and there is the possibility of handling them without care.
For now, we could appeal to all for sincere consideration before downvoting or closing. We would want to be welcoming to new users and their questions. We also do not want to shuttle back and forth between closing and reopening.
