Added in Edit: Now that two of us are accused of abusing our position as moderators, I'm not sure I can contribute anything further.
You have said of each of us that you think we're abusing our positions; you have the right to email the people that oversee us (yes, even us completely unpaid volunteers). See this meta post which explains how to do that.
Nali, I do owe you an apology. The proper way to proceed when I encountered a flag on your first post was to (1) recognize that you are a relative newcomer and welcome you to our site and (2) add a comment explaining why your post had to be deleted. I could plead extenuating circumstances, but that would just be an excuse. I am sorry about the ...
As a test, I just included an image in an answer with a new account:
As you see, you only need 1 reputation -- which everyone gets -- to do that. (Since it's a useless answer, I also deleted it.)
I haven't tested posting questions at this point (I hesitate to spam the site with tests). I'll try to find out for sure whether the limit applies to questions, ...
Anyone can review, and approve or deny, edits to their own posts. That is the case whether the post at issue is a question or an answer. Moreover, their review is final: That is, if they are the first reviewer, there is no need for a second, and if they are the second reviewer, but their review disagrees with the first, their choice is used.

I think you ask two questions, which I will paraphrase.
Can CV.SE get special dispensation to change gold badge requirements?
The only people who have the power to do this are the folks who run Stack Exchange. You can raise it with them, but I doubt they would agree, just because they won't want to open the floodgates and take on management of ...
More rights associated with silver tag badges
One possible option to increase users with more closing rights would be to use the silver tag badges as well. (although it requires to change the website)
This would make sense because it is in line with the intentions and argumentation for the introduction of rights for the gold tag badges but with a different ...
Adding to other answers, we need to employ tags better. For example: What is the difference between a neural network and a deep neural network, and why do the deep ones work better? does not contain the tag machine-learning. It could, and in my opinion, should. The answerers did not receive points toward a machine-learning badge answering a question that's ...
Disclaimer: This may be gaming the system to an unacceptable degree. It seems like a grey area to me, so I offer this for your consideration.
If there are particular tags for which we:
do not have a gold badge member and think it would be beneficial to have one,
have a member who's clearly on the path to achieving it, and
is limited by upvotes rather ...
I was trying to hack the system.
