Just created this question in our wonderful beta.

What really surprised me - I created some initial tags, and they was created without any trouble. Although I have only a simple user with minimal reputation.

Does it work always so?

Yes. Private beta sites have much more lax restrictions on new users, well, because we're all new users here. This is done so we can self-moderate early on.

Once we reach public beta the standards get more strict, and even more so after full launch.

You can check any site's privileges by viewing the /privileges page.

    $\begingroup$ Yes, this is how we "bootstrap" a community where users do not yet have the reputation needed to add these essentials. $\endgroup$ Jan 20, 2015 at 19:58
