Gained bounty privilege without sufficient reputation?

I know that 20 Reputation is required for chat room conversion. This information I found on the privilege page as below,

However I got this notification of chat privilege as follow, while i have 15 reputation at present.

I was surprised to see the notification, so I went to a chat room, where system didn't allow me for chat.

    You had 30 reputation for a period of one second (sufficient enough to trigger the notification), but then your answer was unaccepted.

As Tim Stone explained with the timeline link, I found my answer: It wasn't a bug, it was my misunderstanding.

This image explains very clearly that a user first accepted my answer ( Action 1 ) and just moments later unaccepted my answer ( Action 2 ). Meanwhile the notification was triggered.

However the time between actions ( accepted & unaccepted ) was so minor that it is not showing in my reputation tab, even after I checked "show removed posts". This was the only reason I got confused about the chat notification.

  • Yes, but I guess revoke period is very less sometime, that's why it is not in the picture, how ever it should be there @MrLister
