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 asked a few questions on Guitars.SE and they all got migrated to Music & Performance. As is normal with migrations, accepted answers got cleared, so I went back to re-accept.

The two questions where the accepted answer was made by a user with an account on Music.SE awarded me +2 reputation for accepting the answer. The other two, however, were made by people who didn't have an account on Music and the answers are now orphaned. Accepting those did not award the reputation.

Is that right? It seems like the reward for accepting an answer should be independent of the answer author's status.

The questions that awarded rep correctly are here and here. The ones that did not are here and here.

You were simply ahead of the times. (:

A fix for this was pushed out a day after you voted. If you take a look at your reputation audit, you'll see the +2 entries as you'd expect. If you do a recalc you'll get the +4.
