I just notice that my reputation score suddenly got bumped up by a sizeable number.

I don't see any count on reputation button on top right, neither do I see anything under and Reputation tab on my Activity page. Normally I can look at recent reputation badge and see a daily count. This isn't showing as a change in the last week.

What caused my increase in reputation?

See https://stackoverflow.blog/2019/11/13/were-rewarding-the-question-askers:

We’re changing the reputation earned from getting a question upvote to ten points, making it equal to the reputation earned from an upvote to an answer.

We’re recalculating reputation for every Stack Overflow and Stack Exchange individual based on this change. Every question upvote earned in the past will earn a value of ten reputation points retroactively.
