I just noticed what I think is a bug. I answered a question on SO that was more cynical than anything and earned an upvote for it (I was at 190 rep for the day and it took me to 200). I then deleted this post (no reputation loss) and one of my other answers received an upvote, and there it was again +10 more.

I am not sure if I was seeing things, but I'm pretty sure about this.

As part of the new reputation changes this will take a maximum of 5 minutes to resolve itself, correcting your reputation to what it should be for all of the votes involved.

Enjoy those 10 points while you have them. You'll lose them the next time your rep is recalculated.

I figured as much, but how often is rep recalculated? –  Kyle Rozendo Mar 25 '10 at 20:57

@Kyle: there's no sitewide scheduled recalcs, at the moment, but a mod can kick off a recalc at anytime. if you'd like one just flag one of your posts and request it in the textbox. –  quack quixote Mar 25 '10 at 21:00
    
@quack - thanks I have done so. :) –  Kyle Rozendo Mar 25 '10 at 21:11
