This question already has an answer here:
- How does “Reputation” work? 1 answer
So this is a bit odd. I down-voted a question because it was vague. The post was then edited to include source code. From that source code I gave an answer, but forgot to revert my down-vote. In the mean time I got 3 upvotes for my answer, but no rep for them.
I'm not near the rep-limit for either day. Believing I would not be getting rep for an answer to a question I downvoted, I made a quick edit to add a useful tag to the post, and then revert my downvote.
However, I don't have the rep for my answer.
Is this by-design, or will I get the rep eventually?
