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 noticed (now that this bug has been fixed) that you basically get two +2 rep bonuses for suggesting a tag wiki: one for the wiki, one for the wiki excerpt. Is this really intended? It seems odd to me, since I suggested both at the same time from the same screen. Does it work the same way with posts: do I get +2 for suggesting an edit to a post's title, another +2 for suggesting an edit to the body, and another +2 for suggesting an edit to the tags?

You can only get 1000 points from edits so it's only going to get you to that limit marginally quicker. – ChrisF Feb 11 '11 at 15:08

The excerpt and the body are, for the intents and purposes of the system, completely different posts. For example, the body for that tag is 15930 and the excerpt is 15931.

This does mean twice the bonus for users who suggest a brand new tag wiki that gets approved. Personally, I'm fairly comfortable with that, though, and don't see too much abuse for it.
