I just offered my first bounty on SuperUser, and got the reputation points deducted as expected. However I still have not received the
Promoter badge. Bizarrely, when I then visited this meta site to ask about it, I noticed that my reputation points here have not been deducted.
So I guess this is a two-fold question:
- normally badges are awarded immediately; what went wrong here?
- are site and meta site reputation points supposed to be in sync? (the badges are understandably not - I have more bronze badges on the site than here)
Edit - just realized that the only SE site on which my site and meta reputations were initially in sync is this one (378 points each, the site reputation is now deducted 50 points). On other sites my meta reputation starts at the normal 1 + 100 bonus. Very bizarre coincidence, or what? But the badge is still missing.
Edit 2 - going to my
badges tab, I can see that the
Promoter badge is actually already awarded. But somehow the summary is incorrect; see
