This question already has an answer here:

I thought the community user was locked at one rep, but here, it says the community user had three rep on meta unix and linux. See this: Why is the community user locked at one reputation? There, the comments and answers say that the community user can't gain rep. How did this happen despite it being locked at one rep?

  • I know that it's looked at one rep also because this question is owned by the community user, is not a wiki, and I upvoted it and the community user didn't gain any rep. – John Militer Jul 5 '16 at 1:25

    Another strange thing is that the main account has a score of 1. That makes two things that should keep Community at 1 on meta. – zondo Jul 5 '16 at 1:52

    I suspect sockpuppetry. We've long feared that Community has attained sentience, a network of socks is a logical step in her attempt to take over the world. – yannis Jul 5 '16 at 6:39

Looks like the meta account got out of sync with the main account (which probably got some rep - which can happen for various reasons).

I resynced the users.

    Perhaps you should tag this status-completed (even though this isn't a feature request) – John Militer Jul 5 '16 at 13:43
  • It isn't a bug either. We don't really tag things that are not bugs or feature requests with status tags. – Oded Jul 5 '16 at 14:58

    Looks like a bug to me! – Lightness Races in Orbit Jul 5 '16 at 17:44
  • How else would they get out of sync? – John Militer Jul 7 '16 at 1:36
