So today I get a boost to reputation and then it was taken back. Looks like it has something to do with sock puppet accounts mentioned in another question: Removing sock puppet accounts
I visited meta before and noticed that I have the same reputation as in main. Now after the reputation on main got removed, I still have the higher number here in meta.
How does reputation on meta work? Is it the maximum reputation ever reached? Asking out of sheer curiosity.
OT, feel free to ignore: Also I noticed that stackoverflow meta has separate login from main. So I guess the reputation there works differently?
