Is this by design?

Maybe wait for a few hours first? There could be delays. – kennytm Oct 26 '10 at 20:38
@KennyTM: Maybe. But having the privilege and being notified of it several hours later seems kind of odd :) – user151803 Oct 26 '10 at 20:41
No, not really odd. You don't get notified of new messages right away either, unless they're still waiting when you come back to the site a few hours later. Maybe it is a bug, but I expect it's by design. – Aarobot Oct 26 '10 at 21:00
Better late than premature notification spilling a load of what you can access/do if the rep is reversed/recalced – random Oct 26 '10 at 21:49

See: I've gained the privilege to vote up on Stack Overflow

In particular, as a veteran user you get significantly less notifications. The next notification you should expect is at 1500 when you are able to edit tag wikis.

Why do I get less notifications? I recently gained the privilege "vote down" and "less ads" and didn't get a notification. I really love the popup telling me that I gained a certain privilege... – eckes Dec 24 '10 at 9:40
