I recently signed up for Area 51 and confirmed my email to gain 50 reputation, bringing it to a total of 51.
Then, I went to browse the Nutrition proposal and clicked on one of the questions. Now my reputation count is 1, and I can't upvote or comment on the question. When I return to the Area 51 homepage, my reputation is back to 51.
My badges do not change at all.
Is this a bug or do I have to gain reputation specific to that proposal?
