weird but nice (for me) glitch

Hi, When submitting an answer to a question, the system said it was wrong, but I got like 15 points for seemingly no reason, especially since the problem is worth ~180 points. What happened?

Hi Matthew,

We aren't sure...Maybe the points counter was catching up with tallying one of your prior successes? Do you remember the name of the problem it tallied on?

I don't think it was catching up because I normally wait for the counter to stop before trying a new problem. The problem was Akshaj's problem in Algebra lv 5. leet sum.
