  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question already has an answer here:

I met this user and I saw he just received +4 reputation for one single edit 2 days ago.

I'm curious, is there anything behind this behavior is it just a favorite cache/"recalculation needed" problem?

No, it is always just +2. The user's profile shows +4 because he has two edits that were approved for that question on that day. See the revision history.

Damn. That makes sense. I didn't think about this situation – genesis Oct 21 '11 at 17:11
@genesis You can also click the triangle-expando thingy on the rep page that you linked to – Some Helpful Commenter Oct 21 '11 at 18:09
@ConradFrix: I can't. Look – genesis Oct 21 '11 at 18:10
@genesis hmm that's weird. Maybe you lose that ability when you get to 20K? or maybe you need to refresh your browser – Some Helpful Commenter Oct 21 '11 at 18:13
@ConradFrix: No. I just used "by time" sorting and it somewhat forgot to pluralize the word – genesis Oct 21 '11 at 18:14
@genesis wow I had no idea by-time did that – Some Helpful Commenter Oct 21 '11 at 18:17
