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

My rep on SO went up by 50 just after the site was offline. It says that I get +50 for the question Object Technolgy / Object-Oriented Technology implemented in Relational Databases (deleted, 10K only) but I clearly didn't.

You had previously offered a 50 point bounty on that question, which the system seems to have refunded you when the question was deleted.

There's a related Meta question asking about bounties on deleted questions, but it doesn't currently have an official response (although Shog's answer to another bounty question suggests this is ).

Maybe it only refunds for questions preserving the reputation in the first place i.e. score +3 or more and visible for at least 60 days prior to deletion? That's the case with my question and this one as well. – Shadow Wizard Mar 19 '13 at 20:50
