This morning I received a new privilege, but my last upvote was two days ago and in summary I have not reached the "Awarded At"-limit now.

See this screenshot: enter image description here

I checked my Reputation history and I the last log was 'yesterday'. Is there a pending upvote today and the add privilege queue is faster then the "assign upvote"-queue?

    Someone must have upvoted (getting you to 3,500 rep and the privilege) then immediately unupvoted. So, you did get the privilege for a short time. You can see in your reputation page that yesterday you had "no net reputation changes" - this means that all the voting that happened cancelled out (if there were no voting at all, this line wouldn't show up at all).

  • That makes sense. I also thought about an upvote and withdraw from some old votings - but I expected to see them in my log. But the immediate unupvote makes sense - when the privilege is assigned immediate and it is not withdrawn when the reputation drops under the limit.

Oded's theory, that someone upvoted then rescinded the upvote, makes the most sense to me.

That's kinda sad though, in a grade-school "Psyche!" kind of way. So I went and found a couple of quite worthy posts of yours and upvoted them. You now really have 3,500+ rep, and should for real be able to protect questions. Use your new power responsibly please.

  • Thanks for the upvote ;)
