I didn't earn the "edit community wiki" privilege on Stack Overflow, but it shows in the recent achievements list.


I'm pretty sure this is the same case as @SebastianSimon found on Meta Stack Overflow. Apparently, this question hasn't been asked on Meta Stack Exchange yet (or my duplicate finding skills aren't working before the first coffee of the day).

Your reputation tab shows no net changes for the day:

Following the template from @Oded's answer there:

Why bother with it if there were no rep changes?

Well, that's not true - there were rep changes, but the sum total (net) of them was zero.

That means there were some votes happening that got reversed (most likely an accept, taking you over 100, followed by an un-accept).

Now, you were briefly at 100, so you got the privilege - and a notification was sent and received.

We don't retract notifications, so you saw that, even though that by the time you got it, you lost the privilege :/

  • Yeah, most likely accept that was undone shortly afterwards. – Shadow9 Jul 9 '19 at 7:02
  • But I think deleted comments are pulled from notifications. That’s strange. – Stormblessed Jul 28 '19 at 18:06
  • That happens fairly often, so I guess the developers made the effort to support that case (which makes "We don't retract notifications" false, though e.g. iOS push notifications can't be retracted). What the OP describes happens only rarely and apparently isn't worth the effort to fix. – Glorfindel Jul 29 '19 at 6:47
