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

What new privilege? – Myles Gray Feb 10 '11 at 13:34
Ability to protect questions. I got a notification for it today. – Daniel A. White Feb 10 '11 at 13:36
Ah, got you now, I have just had the same thing on this site, "gained the privilege to vote up" just now, that makes sense, cheers! – Myles Gray Feb 10 '11 at 14:04
