[Meta] Why is it that occasionally people's answers don't include their reputation score?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Every now and then I notice a gravatar associated with someone's answer but no reputation score underneath. I thought this was because the person was no longer a member of PH. But, I can click on their username and see their rep score in their profile. (When the username is unclickable I assume the user's account is gone.)

Any idea about what causes this mysterious behavior? As a mathematically-minded person I've looked for a pattern but haven't found one. For example, I thought that maybe posts older than a certain amount of time don't include reputation scores for anyone but that's not the case.

(If folks can't find examples of what I'm talking about then I'll upload a screenshot to a photo sharing site and link to it.)

Matt, your answer sounds right so I gave you the green check mark. Too bad you didn't get a few more rep points, not that you need them. Thanks for the education! Now I need to learn what community wiki is about.

You get no credit for upvotes when you do this. So upvote this knowing I get no credit for it. :)

That's when you click community wiki when you answer I think.
