I see no '100 edits at meta' restriction.
Am I missing something?
As pointed out, the user in question has not provided a link to a home
project, to prove they have some sort of standing in the community. If this
sort of practice was accepted, I could just go and register several accounts
and vote how I wanted to skew the discussion. Voters have to have *some*
sort of eligibility. We generally ask for 100 edits to any project. You miss
the point where it says *any* project, not just Meta. A user's first edit to
come and vote on such a proposal is not normally the sort of edit an editor
would make. A link to a home project should be provided so the validity of
the vote can be checked.
Yes, I missed the point about "any" project. However how is a user from
Simple who hears about the closure of their project to know that when
they go there to give their opinion, they have to prove their standing
in the community? I think this is just another example of how remote
Meta is for the average editor on other projects.
I thought your comment in the firts link above was a bit bitey.
