I just got access to site analytics achievement, which the linked help says is at 5000 points. Is this a new feature that's being applied en masse to everyone who qualifies, or what?

  • $\begingroup$ I assume so. I noticed the same achievement but haven't done anything with it. $\endgroup$ – Green Sep 10 '15 at 15:17

Yes, this is a new privilege that's rolling out now. See the help center for the details on how to use it, and this Meta.SE post for the background.

It's granted at 25k on graduated sites and 5k on beta sites. Even if you haven't gotten a notification yet, if you have the rep you probably have access -- privilege notifications seem to be generated only on reputation changes.

  • $\begingroup$ If WB gets graduated, do we keep the privileges we have, or do we have to reacquire them, such as going from 5k to 25k rep for the analytics? $\endgroup$ – Frostfyre Sep 11 '15 at 0:08
  • $\begingroup$ @Frostfyre the latter; when a site graduates it moves to the new privilege levels and some users lose privileges. This is why, sometimes, a site that is otherwise doing well is held back -- there need to be enough users at the higher privilege levels to not break the community. (No, I don't know what "enough" is.) $\endgroup$ – Monica Cellio Sep 11 '15 at 0:50
