I just noticed that I was recently (yesterday) given the "Edit community wikis" privilege.
The description about the "Edit community wikis" privilege says that the privilege is given when the user has 100 reputation points.
I joined this SE site (EL&U) about 2 and a half years ago and was given 100 "Association Bonus" points at that time, and I have only earned 13 additional reputation points since then (total 113).
So, what triggered the "Edit community wikis" privilege at this time?

The three entries add up to 112. The extra point (total 113) is because new accounts always begin with 1 point (I think).
The odd thing to me, is that if the "Association Bonus" counts toward the 100 required points, the privilege should have been given when (shortly after) I signed up in May 2013. And if the "Association Bonus" DOESN'T count, then I never earned anywhere near enough reputation points.
The only thing I can think of, is that:
- The "Edit community wikis" privilege is a brand new privilege, or
- The reputation point requirement for the "Edit community wikis" privilege has recently changed (lowered).
and I happen to already meet the reputation point requirement.
I was notified about this privilege in the "Achievements" notification list a few days ago. I was able to click on the entry in the notification list to see info about the privilege, but that notification entry is now gone. I checked my "privileges", and I do have that privilege shown.
Another thing, when I got this notification, I was notified that I now have this privilege on 2 SE sites: EL&U, and another site that I don't recall, and since the notification is now gone, I can't tell which other site it was. The only details I can remember are that it was a site I signed up for about 2 years ago, and that I currently have between 125 and 150 (~135) reputation points.
