Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

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
