Since a few years ago, level 7s have had that ability.
But remember the person who posted the question can always move their question around, regardless of their level.

some are saying the ones on level 7 are changing the questions around. I am on level 7 and it is happening to me also. this question has been asked many times and some keep answering with the same answer all the time
Since never. Level 7 users have been able to do it for the past several years (relocate ANY question). Otherwise, only the user that posted a question, is able to relocate it.
The ability to relocate questions was provided to Level 7s to help ensure questions were posted in the correct category for their topic and it was (mistakenly) assumed that any user that had been on the site long enough to reach Level 7, was likely a quality user and responsible in their behavior on the site (after all, they made it that far without getting their account suspended permanently).
Unfortunately, as with EVERY other feature of the site that can be abused, it has been seriously abused. In some cases, it's quite chronic (the malicious and inappropriate relocating of questions). Yahoo had a way for users to easily report question moving abuse. Verizon Media has given us no such avenue and doesn't appear to be interested in putting a stop to it (or maybe they are working behind the scenes to stop it and just haven't shared it with us, which would be the norm).

A few years ago and not everyone can. Only the asker and level 7 users can.
Only orig poster and Level 7s can move or change categories

Only level 7's can move other user's questions but you can always move your own questions.
