What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

This user opened a linked account on SF and asked a question which was promptly voted to -6. He should have 89 rep from what I can tell, but currently has 101.

I assume that this is a bug. Thoughts?

No bug. Check out the user's rep history. Here's the timeline:

Time  | Activity                   | Rep change | Total rep
------+----------------------------+------------+--------------------------------
0755Z | Account created            | N/A        | 1
1255Z | Question asked             | N/A        | 1
1325Z | Votes accrue: 0 up, 6 down | -12        | 1: can't go below 1 on SE sites
2028Z | Association bonus awarded  | +100       | 101

Hm. So, I understand why it's like that now, but is that how it should work? It seems wrong to me. –  MDMarra Mar 15 '12 at 21:34
    
Remove your downvote and re-cast it? Lol If you're really dead-set on him losing his 2 rep. –  animuson Mar 15 '12 at 21:35
    
Then you probably also don't like how you can downvote a 1-rep user, immediately undo it and see the user's rep balloon to 3, @MDMarra. –  Pops Mar 15 '12 at 21:40
    
@PopularDemand You're right, though I do use that to give a new user that asks a good question +7 –  MDMarra Mar 15 '12 at 21:45

Even with the new rep changes this still happens? Man, that's lame. The order you do things should not affect your rep. –  Matthew Read Mar 15 '12 at 21:48

@Popular - That's no longer possible in 99% of cases. –  Nick Craver Mar 16 '12 at 0:18
    
If you've got enough rep to get a linked account bonus, you're not exactly starting out. –  MDMarra Mar 16 '12 at 0:59
    
Thanks @NickCraver, good to know. –  Pops Mar 16 '12 at 14:22
