I recently answered a question with a bounty Floating a ping pong ball in the air just using a pen!, received 4 upvotes, and was awarded the bounty; I got +150 karma from the bounty as usual, but have not got any reputation from the upvotes.

Is this a bug, or a feature limiting reputation from upvotes that I missed reading about in the FAQ?

    $\begingroup$ @Dilaton It's a term from reddit. I think Hacker News also uses it. Not sure. $\endgroup$ Jul 13 '13 at 22:54
  • $\begingroup$ Even I was confused by that word "karma". . Didn't know it's an English word. $\endgroup$ Jul 15 '13 at 10:25

Firstly, it's "reputation", not "karma" ;-)

Basically, that post is (was) in Community Wiki mode. It does not accrue reputation.

  • $\begingroup$ Wrong website. ;) Also, thanks. $\endgroup$ Jul 14 '13 at 13:41
