Can't remember this ever happened to me before. Tiny bug?


You got +5 from an upvote on the question, not the answer. You simply happened to receive an upvote on both the question and the answer today, hence +10 for the answer and +5 for the question.


I've checked your profile and yes, that is absolutely possible, you've got one upvote for your question (= 5 reputation points) and you've got another upvote for your own answer (= 10 reputation points). Obviously you seem to be new to the Stack Exchange system ... hope you don't mind the joke. :)

  • Haha, sure. I deserve it. I remembered answering the question, but remembered it as answering a question of someone else. Was pretty sure of it. Didn't even check. – Jacob Vlijm Aug 24 '18 at 6:45
  • @JacobVlijm No problem Jacob, such things happen ... especially when someone is as active as you are. Keep up the great work and enjoy the upvotes for your contributions, be it 5 points or 10 points. :) – cl-netbox Aug 24 '18 at 11:21
