I'm trying to ask the first question on this site, but I'm stuck in a loop causing me not to be able to do anything!

    $\begingroup$ I guess, that the privilege levels are on public beta level. $\endgroup$ – MEE Apr 14 '20 at 19:27

    $\begingroup$ @MEE-ReinstateMonica, yes I was surprised that I would need 300, considering how low the rep requirement is for closing questions. Perhaps they need to switch the rep requirements to private beta level. $\endgroup$ – Nike Dattani Apr 14 '20 at 19:28

    $\begingroup$ @Jaakko - When suggesting tags, spell them out: first-person-video not fpv ... you can always point the "fpv" back to the first tag, but for someone uninitiated (new to drones), this will alleviate some confusion. $\endgroup$ – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Apr 14 '20 at 19:43

    $\begingroup$ @Catija, privileges in general are at the correct levels for a graduated site, not private beta. $\endgroup$ – Mark Apr 14 '20 at 19:43

  • $\begingroup$ @Adam I think Meta has correct privilege levels (seeing review queues here), whereas main hasn't. $\endgroup$ – MEE Apr 14 '20 at 19:49
  • $\begingroup$ @Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2, good idea, it's much clearer as first-person-view. $\endgroup$ – Jaakko Apr 15 '20 at 5:52

    $\begingroup$ @Jaakko - Which goes to show you exactly why you shouldn't use the acronym ... yup, I screwed that up! :o) $\endgroup$ – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Apr 15 '20 at 10:36

I knew it was foolish to think that nothing would break in the 11-something months since the last site launch... and yet I dared hope.

The issue itself is fixed now; sorry about that.

What happened was that a few months ago we redid how we track which state a site is in (Private Beta, Public Beta, etc). Before, whether a site was live or not was a combination of a site state and a boolean to track whether it was "offline". That was replaced with a single list of states that included Staged to account for the period of time between when I set the site up in our systems and when it's actually open to the ... private.

Fast forward to privilege calculations. That code didn't account for the Staged state and happily applied full public privilege levels. Needed to redeploy production to get the updated site state to apply and recalc privileges. Needless to say I'll be fixing the code as well.
