I accepted an answer for my question on Web Application Stack Exchange and if I am not wrong you get two reputation points for doing that. But I got it twice. Once yesterday and once today.

Why was I given two additional reputation points? Is it a bug?

You got 2 rep points for accepting & 2 more for suggesting an edit that was approved. That's by design.

    Man... probably the stupidest question I have asked. After 2k reputation points on Stack Overflow I never got points for editing leading to this short term memory loss!
