Edit a question (from other user) and get +2 rep ?

This has been a strange behavior, I don't know its a feature or a bug.

First this is the link to the Question I am talking about

Can I mark some Stack Overflow questions and view them later?

Now the problem.

On that question a user posted an answer. Later I edited (suggested) the answer and added a picture to make answer more helpful.

Now today when I viewed my recent activities summary, I saw that I have earned 2pts for that answer (see screen shot below).

So, I don't know if this is a feature or a bug. I haven't any mention of such behavior in FAQ's. Also I have done many edits on SO and never got any points for that :( so why now.

Now, if this is a bug i would like to suggest to make it a feature. it would be good to get some points for doing some contribution by editing the answer.

(That's why I have added both feature-request and bug tags to this question)

I didn't found any similar question previously asked (may be I'm using wrong keywords)
