Just a question for curiosity's sake... I don't really care about the 'points' but it does seem odd.

I noticed that I had a notification under the Recent Achievements section, so I clicked on the icon... It says I got two upvotes on a certain question.

Later while perusing the Questions page, I saw that someone else had given an answer to the same question, so I went to look at it (I learn here just as much if not more than I teach)...

And there I see that my answer has no votes whatsoever (I just got to 1,000 points so I can see votes now).

These two screenshots contradict each other:

Upvotes there

Upvotes not there anymore

Anybody know what's going on here?

If you had gotten two upvotes, the reputation notifier would be at +20, as you only get 10 points per upvote. Instead you got 2 reputation for suggesting an edit to the question that was approved. You can see this (and other details on your reputation) here.

    Ah it was two points, not two votes... Gotcha. I feel dumb now! Still learning the ins and outs. Thanks for the reply

    Note that the +2 rep per edit will stop after you reach 2k reputation Jul 23, 2017 at 12:59
