I remember clearly that when I had hit a few early milestones (like the Leave Comments one) an orange bar appeared at the top of the screen announcing the feature I had just unlocked.
When I reached 1000 rep on SO, no message bar was showed. I guess "show upvotes/downvotes" was not exciting enough to warrant a message.
Yesterday I hit 2000 rep, which now grants me the ability to edit people's posts, but disappointingly no orange bar was shown for this either.
Has the feature announcement message feature featuring the orange bar of doom™ been removed? Am I maybe misrecalling? I have been falling short of my waffle quota for a while, after all...
