Someone asked a question which moved me to edit their question and add a new tag called pal. Later after, I edited this tag wiki and added some information about it. Now, I look at my reputation, and I'm credited twice in a row for the same edit. So instead of 2 rep, I gained 4 rep. Both these occurrences are also at slightly different times (6 minutes apart).

Rep shows same thing twice

When I look at my activity, it also shows...

Activity shows same thing twice

Why was this counted twice?

You got 2 points for the excerpt and 2 points for the description.

The time lag was because they both were approved through the review process at different times.

  • Sounds reasonable, but look at the picture I added in my edit - it shows both of them that the body was edited. Oct 14, 2013 at 21:16
  • @JerryDodge, yes, the body of the description, and the body of the excerpt. I'll change the language in my answer. Oct 14, 2013 at 21:17
  • I didn't see the description and excerpt at first, now I do Oct 14, 2013 at 21:19
