-1

I've posted this answer and I've got a downvote since at first I quoted irrelevant part of standard, yet I've also got 2 upvotes, so with score 1 (+2/-1) I deleted my answer, edited it and when it was finally correct
I undeleted it ~> downvote was removed and I've got one more upvote.

The reputation log shows: -2, +12, +2 ~> i.e. +14 rep for answer with 3 upvotes & 0 downvotes:

In this question, someone was experiencing similar problem: Got 2 plus points from downvote but I guess it was different.

Is this bug? What I am missing here?

  • Someone removed their downvote on your question, so you got the 2 reputation back – Richard Tingle Oct 8 '13 at 10:06
  • @RichardTingle: But why I've got additional +2 today? – LihO Oct 8 '13 at 10:07
  • because -2 + (+2) =0 – Richard Tingle Oct 8 '13 at 10:07
  • @RichardTingle: I think the system gave me 2 rep back by the time I've got +12 – LihO Oct 8 '13 at 10:08

    You hit the rep cap and only got 12 instead of 20 points. – juergen d Oct 8 '13 at 10:09
  • @juergend: Why I've received 30 rep for another answer afterwards? – LihO Oct 8 '13 at 10:10
  • @LihO - You didn't. The 30 is from before hitting the rep cap. You got additional upvotes on that answer afterwards, but no reputation. – Oded Oct 8 '13 at 10:12

The reason why you don't simply have +30 for the three upvotes and have +12 instead is that you reached the reputation cap.

The second +2 vote is due to a downvote being reversed (thus undoing the -2).enter image description here

More in depth, the reputation timeline shows a rolled-up summary of rep changes per question. In your case you had a fourth upvote on the "How to +1" question at 19:03, which gave you 0 rep to the rep cap, but changed the timestamp of the roll-up to that time.

  • Shouldn't the system show that "+12" later than "+30" in this case? – LihO Oct 8 '13 at 10:21
  • That's because this is showing a roll up. I'll update the answer. – Sklivvz Oct 8 '13 at 10:27
  • Aggregating rep change per question is wise and practical, yet I think it shouldn't happen in this case. The "+12" should have a proper timestamp reflecting the event at the moment it really occured. – LihO Oct 8 '13 at 10:37

    Does this help? stackoverflow.com/users/1168156/… – Sklivvz Oct 8 '13 at 10:40
  • Yeah, it shows all events perfectly. Thank you ^^ – LihO Oct 8 '13 at 10:46
