Gained bounty privilege without sufficient reputation?

I know that 20 Reputation is required for chat room conversion. This information I found on the privilege page as below,

enter image description here

However I got this notification of chat privilege as follow, while i have 15 reputation at present.

I was surprised to see the notification, so I went to a chat room, where system didn't allow me for chat.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You had 30 reputation for a period of one second (sufficient enough to trigger the notification), but then your answer was unaccepted. – Tim Stone May 26 '12 at 3:00
but i can't see that reputation part, even after ticking "show removed posts" @TimStone – Champion May 26 '12 at 3:02

As Tim Stone explained with the timeline link, I found my answer: It wasn't a bug, it was my misunderstanding.

This image explains very clearly that a user first accepted my answer ( Action 1 ) and just moments later unaccepted my answer ( Action 2 ). Meanwhile the notification was triggered.

However the time between actions ( accepted & unaccepted ) was so minor that it is not showing in my reputation tab, even after I checked "show removed posts". This was the only reason I got confused about the chat notification.

Yes, but I guess revoke period is very less sometime, that's why it is not in the picture, how ever it should be there @MrLister – Champion May 26 '12 at 9:07
