For a long time, I've been thinking, why can you grade homework, before you can create topics? I mean WoP and other WoX sites is an RPG based site, so how come making a topic, is harder to do, than to grade homework, which is in my opinion a bigger responsibility.
My suggestion is to switch it around. Making it so you have to be level 3 to create a topic. And level 5 to grade homework. This will also make it so, that people have more knowledge about the site, the requirements and so on, before they grade homework, hopefully making it so, they don't do as many mistakes as they would at level 3, when they are completely new to the site.
