Stack Exchange network consists of 176 Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers.
After logging in this morning I noticed there was a major change in the requirement for certain privileges such as voting, having gone from 500 to 3000. Why was this change not announced when it removes privileges from users?
There was a mishap upstream. All seems to be good again.
Note that once we graduate beta (which seems to be in preparation) privileges will go up in rep requirements. Discussing whether this makes sense would be material for Meta Stack Exchange.
