I like the reputation points, but... this looks like a bug:

Few minutes ago my reputation increased with 50 points because a question was removed:

It was a good voted up question, but closed as too localized, according to Google cache: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:https://stackoverflow.com/questions/8999221/mercury-editors-image-insert-trigger-not-working-in-firefox-in-windows-platform

Is this a bug or a new feature? Any explanation for this?

Also, I don't remember that I had any interaction on that question (like a very downvoted answer or something like that).

Anyway, I would like not to be a bug. :-)


You gave a bounty of +50 on that question: (revisions)

Soon enough you'll reach 10K and you'll see such questions appear in your bounty tab as well.

  • Hmmm? :-) Good catch, how did you find that? Dec 24 '13 at 15:56
  • @イオニカビザウ He has enough rep to see the deleted question, which there is a link to from the google cache page you gave. It would also then be visible from your bounties tab.

  • I cannot see the revisions, but I still don't see the question in the offered bounties list. Dec 24 '13 at 15:58
  • @イオニカビザウ like I wrote, you need 10K. Dec 24 '13 at 15:58
  • @ShadowWizard That's what I said ;)

  • @Servy you edited! Dec 24 '13 at 15:59
  • @ShadowWizard Because the question was deleted, can't I see it in the list? Dec 24 '13 at 15:59

    @イオニカビザウ Because it's deleted and you don't have enough rep to see deleted questions that are not yours, you can't see it in the list.
