What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

A couple of days ago I only got 10 rep for an accepted answer (which now that I think about it, could be moved to superuser :) ) on stackoverflow with 1 upvote. My rep went from 201 to 211.

alt text No Questions and the only Community Wiki answer is "How can I help my poor friend learning to program?" with 2 upvotes.

My current rep should be 236 (16 upvotes + 5 accepted answers + startrep(1)) instead of 221. The reputation chart seems to show the right reputation.

The bug appeared about 48 hours ago. I went through the faq and meta.stackoverflow and couldn't find an explanation for the missing 15 points except for the daily repcap that I did not exceed.

Edit: The solution to the Problem was a rep recalc. Why the bug appeared is still a mystery to me.

Want me to risk a rep recalc? – Marc Gravell Nov 26 '09 at 22:48
there is a risk? but feel free :) – marg Nov 26 '09 at 22:52
Yes; if you have rep from questions that have been deleted / migrated it can be lost; and a few other such scenarios. Sometimes people have lost 300+ points during a rep recalc. You gained ;-p – Marc Gravell Nov 26 '09 at 23:38
The rep recalc seems to have worked. thx. I'll add a note to my post. – marg Nov 26 '09 at 23:39
