Since last night my rep points have increased from around 381 to 8333. On every page refresh I gain about 100 points and another devotee badge (I have over 164 now).
At first I assumed the website was very intuitive and was adjusting my rep points to match my good character. But, alas, it appears to be problem with the web site.
If I click on my name to access my account I get
Error executing child request for /error.aspx.
It seems to be an issue when I am logged in. If I am logged in I get the preceding error message when I attempt to access anything but the forum. If logged out I can access the rest of scirra.com as a guest.
