how to let users/authors create categories (3 posts)

    What level must a user/author be promoted to, in order to be allowed to make up categories?

    And if this is possible, is there a downside?

    Thank you

    Thank you for such a quick reply, most interesting.
    My test user of level 1 can post. (WP1.5)
    I set Options>Writing so newly registered members can post, so this was not surprising, butCodex says a user must be at level 2 to post. I guess Options override levels.
    It seems like there is no way (in the GUI) to change default author level to 4 (category-management level). Which may be just as well.
