I just passed 1k reputation on askubuntu.com (hooray, carry on). When other reputation privilege milestones are passed (at least each time I can remember), there is nice "You've gained the privilege" message (bar in the top of the screen).
However, when 1k is passed, there is nothing (at least in superuser.com or in askubuntu.com). Why is that? Are "Create gallery chat rooms" and "view vote counts" so minor, there is no reason to inform users?
