In the old style one had a direct link to the personal list of unlocked and locked privileges:

I still find it via the help center, e.g. https://meta.stackexchange.com/help/privileges, and I do find a link from my profile to the next available privilege.

I you think it would be reasonable to link not the next available privilege (which is of course nice too) but rather the entire list.

    @Pat oh my, blonde moment. Disregard! The previous design indeed contains a direct link to privileges list. :( – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Apr 20 '15 at 7:59
  • @Pat great minds think alike! Just added a screenshot. :-) – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Apr 20 '15 at 8:01
  • Did they run out of space maybe? – Patrick Hofman Apr 20 '15 at 8:02

The links at the top of your old profile have moved to a new major tab called Edit profile & settings. You can find the functionality on that tab as categories on the left of your screen. The option Privileges can be found as the last option in that list.


You can also click on the area under Next privilege on your activity tab which brings you to your next privilege. From there it is easy to navigate to the full list.


The full privilege list is also linked from the main page of the help center

  • Why is it stuck so far away? Did they run out of space maybe? – Patrick Hofman Apr 20 '15 at 8:02

    @PatrickHofman I've edited my answer to include an explanation how your cheese was moved – rene Apr 20 '15 at 8:17

    Well, it's still two clicks away vs. one click in previous design. Harder to reach the cheese. – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Apr 20 '15 at 12:15

    @ShadowWizard that will keep the mice away. – rene Apr 20 '15 at 12:18
  • This is a horrible solution, having to choose Edit to look up something I cannot edit! – PJTraill Oct 19 '17 at 10:12
  • My comment is not intended to criticise you, but only the situation as it is. I quite like the proposal on why-is-there-no-link-to-privileges-on-profile-page-but-a-link-in-profile-card, but really I would prefer to see ‘Privileges’ somewhere. – PJTraill Oct 19 '17 at 14:59
