I made several edit suggestions and each time my reputation increased by 2, except once when it increased by 4 (cool! :D) . But my reputation increased only by 2 (less cool ;) ).

enter image description here

I think there is a bug when I received +4 instead of +2.

    Apparently your suggestion counted twice: stackoverflow.com/posts/22659563/revisions Mar 27, 2014 at 14:05
  • Yes, Thank you very much! I went too fast in my edit. But there is still a bug, it would have to count me once, isn't it? (in the +4 displayed)

    Yes, to me it is a bug because the suggestion id is the same: stackoverflow.com/review/suggested-edits/4439034 so you should get +2 instead of 2 x +2 Mar 27, 2014 at 14:08
  • Thank's very much for your attention. :)

    This has happened before, but I'm reluctant to close as a duplicate yet as I don't want this to get buried in old bug reports Mar 27, 2014 at 14:14

    Another reason not to close as a duplicate is I am not convinced it is the same issue. The previous issue I linked might not be the exact same issue as the earlier post had 2 different timestamps for the 2 revisions, whereas yours have the same timestamp. It is still related and I added a bounty to the other question to get some more visibility. Mar 27, 2014 at 14:26

    Looks like a "free rep bug for 1 out of 1000000 edits" - enjoy it while you can! Mar 27, 2014 at 15:17
  • @S.L. Barth was it by mis-click ?

  • @Kedarnath No, I felt you left too much unattended in your edit suggestion. Mar 27, 2014 at 16:02

    @Kedarnath Er, I did change several things to your edit suggestion. You left "several edit" in singular, and left "reputation increased 2" and "reputation increased 4". I added the "by" there. Off the top of my head, I think I changed a few other things as well. Mar 27, 2014 at 16:21
