Something strange seems to have happened to my reputation. It shot up by over 500 points for some reason and the increase now appears to be historically added as well. How can that be?

In my very first blog post, I wrote about what a personal experience taught me about the Stack Overflow community. I said we were going to step back and re-evaluate how we deliver feedback, how we can improve content quality, and how we can reduce friction between people. I said that our goal is to have the question asking process be painless and beneficial for new people and Stack Overflow veterans alike.    

During this re-evaluation period, we noticed something in our reputation reward system. We give anyone who receives an upvote on an answer ten additional reputation points, but only give five reputation points to people who receive an upvote on a question.  …

I see, so where I thought one went down I was mistaken. And that explains why I've seen a few go up.
