Finally catch a day when Jon Skeet scores less than 100! :-) Weird and some more weird.

Below is a day-view of his reputation change under graph view. Can anyone explain why there is a 0-score shown there? Shouldn't it always be 15 for accepted answer? Clearly it should not be related to day reputation limit here.

P.S. I did check these two answers, and it had never received any down-votes (sure he did, just to clarify though).

    Are they community wiki by any chance?

You don't get rep for accepting your own answer, or for accepted community wiki answers.

  • By accepting your own answer and if it is has a score of 0, does that count towards earning the "Tenacious" or "Unsung Hero" badges? Just curious. Personally, I don't think it should, but I don't know how it currently stands.

  • @SlyRaskal: No, Tenacious and Unsung Hero only apply to answering questions that are not your own. Jan 22, 2014 at 19:05

    @SlyRaskal: from the badges faq: Community wiki answers, deleted answers, and self-accepted answers are not included in any calculations Jan 22, 2014 at 19:06
  • Thanks for the info @MartijnPieters.
