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

I came across some mildly curious behaviour today.

  • I reached the reputation cap on SO

  • I started a 450 bounty

  • The bounty amount was reduced from the overall reputation

  • I have had two accepted answers since. Those +30 have not been counted towards my visible reputation score.

  • They are, however, visible in the reputation audit. My reputation audit score seems to be taking the acceptances into account.

This is not a support request. There is no problem. Just thought I'd report it in case it's an edge case with deeper consequences (which I doubt), and slightly curious whether this is expected behaviour.
