Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I think that the threshold of user hover-boxes should appear in the privileges page as it is a privilege.

I do not think so. This is not a privilege, it is a customisation bonus. Privileges relates to actions that impacts the community (open/close up/down votes, protect question, moderator tools, flag, ...). Profile does not.

Reduced advertising defies this statement. But this is a huge improvement in the user experience on the stacks sites. I think user cards does not deserves such a highlight.

Reduced advertising, which is my way of saying you're rationalizing. It does make sense to add the user card to that list - it is where people will look for it, and it will prevent a lot of questions. – Kobi Sep 7 '11 at 8:50
    
@Kobi to be noted that reduce ads is not a privilege in sites outside the trilogy (Did not check all, but Information Security, Arqade does not have it). But it's indeed an exception to my remark. :( – M'vy Sep 7 '11 at 8:57

That's a good counterpoint! excellent argument we're having here. Maybe it belongs in the Established User page? It does mean hiding it a little... – Kobi Sep 7 '11 at 9:00
    
It's in the established user page! – gladoscc Sep 7 '11 at 9:52
    
So it is! I never read anything. Maybe I'll add it to my answer. – Kobi Sep 7 '11 at 9:54
    
@Kobi seems the privileges pages are wiki pages :P (I can see it on meta, but not on gaming... need more rep I guess) – M'vy Sep 7 '11 at 9:57
    
@M'vy - What do you mean? You can edit privileges pages on some sites, but can't see them on other sites? remarkable! – Kobi Sep 7 '11 at 10:02
    
@Kobi I mean I have an edit/history link for privileges pages like meta.stackoverflow.com/privileges/established-user (on meta), but not on gaming. – M'vy Sep 7 '11 at 10:14
    
@M'vy - Ohhh... That's sort of nice. – Kobi Sep 7 '11 at 10:23

I agree. If reduced advertising is there, the user card should also be.

It is where people will look for it, and adding it will prevent a lot of questions or confusion.

Further research reveals it is already on the Established User page, which a somewhat good place as long as it is displayed at 1000 reputation.
