I am getting ready to implement a Q&A site, and I want any new user to have the ability to upload files. However, Askbot is saying file uploading requires karma > 10.

Or, alternatively, is there a config file where I can remove these restrictions?

Nevermind. I figured it out. You must log in as the admin account, and click on the settings hyperlink which takes you to

Here are some screenshots I took that follow @Doug5280's procedure for changing the Karma level.

Once you know where to look, it really isn't that hard.
