Could "start mode" be added as a feature?

OSQA offers a start mode where the Karma requirements are set very low for a new site. This makes it a lot easier to get a site started.

While you can do this manually in the settings, it would seem that adding a switch to do this would make it a lot less work.

I agree with this. What values do you suggest?

maybe in general default/10? with some reasonable exceptions for the smallest numbers.

@nicafyl: Implemented here need feedback about the "start mode" scores.

The values you picked look realistic. Having not run any real sites yet, that's about all I can say at this point. Hopefully I will have more input once I get a couple of real sites up. Thanks for the change.

We'll do it soon. Filed it under , could you take a look?

As proposed, the settings (reputation minima, vote limits, and badges) but not others will change only when the "mode" (we need to come up with a better name) is changed.

This change will overwrite certain settings without being able to undo.
