Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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 just placed a bounty on someone else's question on SO. When I did so, I was informed I'd gained the privilege to up-vote. I already had that privilege, and as the bounty left me with 79 rep, surely I had that privilege and others.

Was this because I haven't been active in a while? Is this the correct behaviour?

Correct, for people who have not been active in a long time you might get this message.
