I made an edit as an anonymous user. How can I get the reputation if my edit is accepted?

    Anonymous gets reputation if the edit is approved. – Dukeling Jun 16 '18 at 0:51

    If you get the reputation, the editor is no longer anonymous. Sorry, I don't get your question. – Masked Man Jun 17 '18 at 6:47
  • Theoretically the team can merge different accounts. But it requires CM or higher intervention, even over the level of the moderators. For a single +2 rep edit, don't waste their time. Rather write 10 good answers, but this time from your account :-) – peterh - Reinstate Monica Jun 17 '18 at 18:52
  • oh wow this has a lot of downvotes. I guess i am not good at asking questions. :( – user393619 Jun 19 '18 at 0:10

You can't have your cheese and eat it.

You won't. You get reputation as the user who did the edit, and if you figured you wanted to edit anonymously for any reason, you're not getting the reputation for the edit.

So if you want to get reputation for an edit, you're going to have to own up, and take responsibility for it too.
