This question already has an answer here:

My rep on SO went up by 50 just after the site was offline. It says that I get +50 for the question Object Technolgy / Object-Oriented Technology implemented in Relational Databases (deleted, 10K only) but I clearly didn't.

You had previously offered a 50 point bounty on that question, which the system seems to have refunded you when the question was deleted.

There's a related Meta question asking about bounties on deleted questions, but it doesn't currently have an official response (although Shog's answer to another bounty question suggests this is ).

Update: As of February 13, 2018, the bounty reputation is no longer refunded upon question deletion if the bounty awardee gets to retain it (because it scored +3 and was visible for at least 60 days).

  • Maybe it only refunds for questions preserving the reputation in the first place i.e. score +3 or more and visible for at least 60 days prior to deletion? That's the case with my question and this one as well. – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Mar 19 '13 at 20:50
