What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 130 Stack Exchange communities.

As a result of this post, the privilege notification banner now reads

Congrats, you've gained the privilege – edit questions and answers (or whatever other privilege -ed) learn more

That still doesn't seem quite right to me. It's mixing up the definite and indefinite articles, and implying that there is a grand total of one privilege to earn on Stack Exchange sites (there are actually 23). Shouldn't it be either

Congrats, you've gained a privilege – editing questions...

or

Congrats, you've gained the privilege of editing questions...

EDIT
When I originally asked this question, I completely forgot about English SE. I've now posted there.

How about:

Congratulations, you have earned the following privilege: {0}

And if it's more than one:

Congratulations, you have earned the following privileges: {0}

Some ambiguity here is unavoidable as the formatting is generic, and the titles may vary over time.

Also,

Congrats, you've gained the privilege – edit questions and answers

It may be oddly worded, but it is a valid sentence, whether you like it or not.

Even just changing the to : would make a huge difference I think. If you get multiple privs at the same time does it use there also? –  Rebecca Chernoff Nov 7 '10 at 15:35

-1, because "it is a valid sentence" is simply not true. –  Pops Nov 7 '10 at 22:17
