Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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 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.
