Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Hi, On July 24th I answered a question in stackoverflow, and it got 18 votes, mostly in the two days after.

On July 30th, I wrote another nice question and it got 12 votes, as you can see from my profile.

So, why do I only have 230 total reputation points*? I don't care too much about that, but I tought this may be an error of the website.

The only 'weird' thing I have done recently is that I have deleted an answer of mine, because it was not related to the question. I am looking for that post but I can't find it now... maybe the question has been deleted, it was about how to delete the 4000th line of a file under Windows.

*now I have 330, because I got a bonus when I have registered here and associated the accounts.

Your 12 vote answer is a "community wiki" = no reputation

More info: What are “Community Wiki” posts on Stack Overflow?

ah!! ok sorry, I have missed it. I didn't understand that when a question is converted to a community wiki, all the answers are also converted to that. – user132890 Aug 2 '09 at 10:58

I see you got the 180 points for the one answer. The other questions looks more like a "wiki" question and in that case points aren't given for those since those are usually not directly programming related.
