I was going through the "first post" review queue, and I came across this answer. I thought "93 rep? No answers? Seems fishy". I looked at his profile, and he has answers dating back to Oct 15th. What's up with that?

As a side note, it looks like the answer has been deleted now, as the question in... question currently has no answers

Additionally, at the time of writing his profile says last seen 22 hours ago, but that answer was 5 hours ago.

  • I bet it was a test.

  • While this does not seem to be the case here, remember that any user with >200 rep on any of the Stack Exchange sites will automatically get an association bonus of 100 rep on any new account they create so ~100 rep can still be a new user.

  • @terdon Yeah, 93 just seemed to be a weird number to me, so I looked into it.

    @Mateo you might be right, I forgot about the random tests interspersed. I guess I was paying attention

It was a test. The answer was a real answer, once upon a time, it has, however, since been deleted. As I did not perform the deletion I am not 100% sure as to the reason it was deleted, but I suspect it was because the post isn't an answer just a vague "poke around here..".

The review system has used the post as an audit several times already.
