My reputation appears to have increased for some reason today. I first noticed a jump of 200 reputation on January 18 in just 10 minutes, but assumed it would be soon reversed. I noticed another jump today from votes within a 10 minute time range - just 20 minutes ago, but the previous votes from January 18 still have not been reversed.

I have not answered any questions for weeks, and generally only get some stray votes from old answers.

Is this:

  • serial upvoting that doesn't look like serial upvoting to the automated script?
  • or something that is not serial upvoting, but looks like serial upvoting to me?
  • Don't know why previous upvoting is not reversed but, today's upvotes are obviously serial upvoting. – hims056 Jan 29 '13 at 4:19
  • The one that just occurred won't even have the chance to get reversed for approximately 23 hours. The one from Jan 18 does look suspicious, though. – animuson Jan 29 '13 at 4:20

    How come no one ever serial upvotes me? :/ – Austin Henley Jan 29 '13 at 4:21
  • If you feel guilty about this I'm sure we Meta-heads can work it out by mass downvoting you ;-) – Manishearth Jan 29 '13 at 4:22
  • @AustinHenley - you need more answers to get attention – ronalchn Jan 29 '13 at 4:22
  • @Manishearth - downvotes don't reverse upvotes. You can restore the answer score, or the reputation to what it was, but you cannot do both. – ronalchn Jan 29 '13 at 4:23
