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

This question I just answered appears to have a chosen answer in the JavaScript category. Knowing that only I answered the question, I assumed that my answer was chosen. However, when I viewed the post, it's not. Even my reputation seems to have no change as well. I'm also above 10k so I should see deleted answers, if any, but there's none as well.

Any chance you got confused in the colors? Do you have screenshot? – Shadow Wizard Nov 18 '12 at 12:39
@ShaWizDowArd I guess I did. But it the explanation about the cache also helped. – Joseph the Dreamer Nov 19 '12 at 11:45

This is most likely due to caching. The OP accepted an answer, then changed his mind and un-accepted. In fact, in my browser, the question is not shown as having an accepted answer:

question *without* accepted answer

When an OP accepts, then unaccepts an answer, the 'accepted' status of the question can still be cached in listings. You'd have gained, then lost 15 points, which if that occurred within the same day, is not listed in your reputation.
