I up-voted a Luboš Motl answer and thought I might be the first to humbly see his score the first to tick over past 100K. But it seems to be stuck on 99,996.

Is there a reason for this?

Maybe the system has gone haywire over a few people thinking the same as me?

    $\begingroup$ By the way, voting just to see someone exceed a rep threshold is officially a Bad Thing - it falls in the same category of discouraged behavior as serial voting/revenge downvoting. But it's rare enough that we don't make a fuss about it. $\endgroup$ – David Z Aug 12 '14 at 18:25
  • $\begingroup$ @DavidZ yes, I agree. But it was on an answer that I understood as being right, and I voted on a few other user's questions/answers. $\endgroup$ – John McVirgo Aug 12 '14 at 18:28

    $\begingroup$ Sure, I didn't really mean to be accusatory, just kind of putting that out there as a general reminder. $\endgroup$ – David Z Aug 12 '14 at 19:11

I have to confess I did exactly the same (my apologies to DavidZ) with the same lack of effect. However I see Luboš is now on 100,026 so we have our first 100k user! Congratulations to Luboš (he said through gritted teeth :-).
