I am new to Stack Overflow, and currently have 1 rep status (at the moment, I just posted three answers there).
A few minutes back, the reputation section in my profile summary showed that I was awarded 10 reputation in relation to this post answer. Nevertheless, after clicking on the link to see that post, the status was still "0" votes for my answer and the answer not ticked as accepted either.
When returning to the reputation section in my profile summary, I could see I had now 1 rep instead of 10, but, at the same time "positive reputation change" was showing a green bar.
After refreshing a few times, the green bar itself disappeared, and that section is now showing "You have no recent positive reputation changes", and I still am at 1 rep in my status.
In the meantime, I got notified of new "privileges" granted to me, such as posting here, namely: "Communication privilege - Awarded at: 5 reputation"... while I am actually presently 1 rep.
I really don't understand what happened, and I can't seem to find any history about it.
I am unsure of what happened, if this is a bug, or if there is an explanation I am unaware of due to my lack of knowledge.
