What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I was browsing SO for about ten minutes, when I suddenly got that banner at the top of the page that said I earned the "vote down" privilege. Thing is, I had something like 1,490 reputation at the time. I kind of took it for granted that I could vote down.

Am I just not voting down enough? Is SO trying to tell me something?

I can explain this ... sorry about it.

I refactored the privilege system this week and noticed that users were not getting notified for a couple of privs. I reset it across the network which caused a few people who never got the notification (non veteran users) to get the notifications.
