Gaining meaningful editing access isn't a Herculean task but it is annoyingly slow and can sap interest. As far as I know it takes a bit of time for that access level to go up, and when I first started out I edited a bit and forgot about the site due to not really having much access until they reminded me of its existence in passing.

Alternatively, I could open it up to everyone where people without extra access would need to have their adds/edits approved by a user with access before it would go on the site. It would take more work, and I would probably add it a bit at a time.

We'd probably get a lot of crap coming in we'd have to sift through.
