I used to get this:

enter image description here

But lately, this hasn't been appearing for me. I know I have been gaining reputation, but It's not showing the green icon for it. I don't think I really clicked anything different, so why did it disappear?

  • It has been always appearing to me if there were any positive rep changes... [status-norepro]

  • @ShadowWizard, this is barely anything to do with the marked duplicate post.

    It got everything to do @Chantola, it disappeared because your reputation dropped and reputation drops cause the highlight to disappear/not show. Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 14:17

I think it's because You lost 500 points.

The achievements shows your total rep, i.e -500 + whatever you gained, since it is still under zero it will not be shown.

But you can still click the achievements icon in order to solve the problem(the -500 will not be counted anymore)
