Bear with my curiosity here - with no questions or answers, where did Lauren's 7 rep come from, and why?

    It's not a real 7 rep; it's a mystical 7 rep to match her mystical psi. – Kit Z. Fox Jul 29 '11 at 17:49

Going by this comment left by a fellow mod in chat, her first three edits had to be peer-reviewed (for whatever reason). That's 3×2 = 6 points, plus the one everyone starts with, makes 7. Now Lauren seems to have the full edit privileges. No peer reviews, no points.

  • I assume it's the same with the diamond Community mod, with 3 rep? – Daniel Jul 29 '11 at 15:33

    @drm65: The Community user owns a whole bunch of stuff, including, if I am not lying, all votes on deleted posts. In any case, reverse-engineering its rep is considerably more complicated. – RegDwigнt Jul 29 '11 at 18:28

    @Reg: I hope you meant 'if I'm not mistaken.' "If I'm not lying" raises too many metaphysical questions for a Friday night. – Tim Lymington Jul 29 '11 at 20:42

    @Tim: Speakers of a certain language will appreciate the reference. Others I am comfortable with leaving scratching their heads. That's how I roll, especially on Friday nights. (^_^) – RegDwigнt Jul 29 '11 at 21:32

The 7 rep is incalculable. It's a direct result of raw CHAOS being unleashed upon SE.


It is probable that her first edits needed to be peer-reviewed because she was not a moderator, when she edited those first questions. Watching at her profile now, I see that now she is not shown as moderator, on EL&U.
