On most sites (including on main), the Community user's reputation is stuck at 1. However, if you look at the very instant that this question was posted, the Community user's reputation here is 3. I am curious about two things:

  • Why is the Community user's reputation something different from 1?
  • Why does it have a reputation different from that on the main site?

UPDATE: Three weeks after asking this question, the Community user's reputation is still 3. Which means that, its rep is not syncing for whatever reason.

  • Obviously, it asked a question on SuperUser and received one upvote, before superuser's meta-thing was migrated to meta.superuser. (I'm taking a wild guess here; this is probably wrong, but it sounded funny) – allquixotic Jan 6 '14 at 19:23
  • @allquixotic If it asked a question on main and received an upvote, it would have 6 reputation, not 3. – gparyani Jan 6 '14 at 19:38
  • Suggested edits by anonymous users are attributed to Community. IIRC if one is accepted, Community gets the rep, and it's periodically reset. Not sure though. – Daniel Beck Jan 6 '14 at 19:50
  • Weird since there's no suggested edits on meta though (cc @DanielBeck) – nhinkle Jan 6 '14 at 20:19
  • @nhinkle Maybe it's main site rep that hasn't been synched yet? – Daniel Beck Jan 6 '14 at 20:31
  • I'm going to check on this just to make sure it's not a regression - I see no events that could have given it rep. – Tim Post Feb 2 '14 at 13:47
  • @TimPost What was the result? – gparyani Feb 2 '14 at 20:30

    @gparyani Will let you know as soon as I can get a dev to take a peek. I'm kind of scratching my head on what it ended up owning that resulted in it. – Tim Post Feb 3 '14 at 4:35

    Community now has a rep of 1, so this question is now obsolete. – gparyani Feb 3 '14 at 17:53
