I recently got suspended (stupid me, I know) on Stack Overflow.

However, I have noticed that, after my suspension, my reputation has not gone back up to what it was before.
I saw a question on Meta that said that it is temporarily set to 1.

My reputation is still 1 now, and I have lost all my privileges.
Is this a bug in the site, or has the post-suspended account to start of again with 1 reputation?

    I fixed that for you, via a rep recalc. I apologize to the devs if that makes it harder to track down the problem. – Robert Harvey Dec 5 '11 at 18:12
  • But then, @Robert, anyone can easily be suspended again. ;-) Seriously: feel free to suspend me, for example, if only as I have not participated on SO for too long! – Arjan Dec 5 '11 at 20:19

    @Arjan I'm sure that the devs have access to test accounts or accounts that look like a person but would fail a turing test – Some Helpful Commenter Dec 5 '11 at 20:30

    @Arjan Eggs McLaren, for one. – John Dec 5 '11 at 23:39
  • How does one get suspended on SO?? – manojlds Dec 24 '11 at 7:42

When coming out of suspension your reputation is recalced...we run these recalcs once an hour, you simply have to wait for that to happen. In this case Robert recalced you...but the same would have happened automatically 16 minutes later.

    And this is why I've learned to wait a day or two before posting any "bug" reports. :P – John Dec 24 '11 at 6:02
