I realize this might not be feasible, because course all of that hinges on the possibility to get some acceptable data on a users behavior on other sites, but for me the biggest hurdle is that to contribute here I have to start over building trust and gaining abilities. That took some serious time over at the other Q&A site, the prospect of doing it all over is very daunting to me.

So my suggestion is give people with a sizable fake internet currency pile on other Q&A sites a migration bonus.

A few options how that could work:
- Plain reputation bonus (maybe a flat 100, maybe something relative to their points at the other site)
- Lower ability requirements (ie if you've proven you can do good edits (flags, ...)  elsewhere you're likely to be able to do good edits here)
