I have recently magically increased my reputation to be 32k, but I still can't read those deleted replies and comments, for example here. Can I? p.s. Happy everyday!

    $\begingroup$ You're a long way from 32K. Please visit stats.stackexchange.com/help/privileges to review which privileges are associated with which levels of reputation. Question deletion does not become possible until 10K, so I would guess you cannot read deleted material until you have reached that level. Consider contributing some good answers to our site; they can help grow reputation faster. $\endgroup$ – whuber Apr 1 '14 at 18:30

    $\begingroup$ @whuber, I think this is an SE April fools day gag. They are offering "magic unicoins" that you can use to do things like increase your reputation, etc. I suspect it will last 1 day only, and not have any real effects (ie, no extra privileges). $\endgroup$ – gung - Reinstate Monica Apr 1 '14 at 18:41

    $\begingroup$ Thanks @gung. I feel deceived, because the unicoins have no effect on how I read the reputation values. Such a stark difference in how the site is presented to two people creates potential for misunderstandings, conflicts, and worse. I like a joke as much as anyone but this one doesn't look funny to me. Tim, I am sorry about the misunderstanding. $\endgroup$ – whuber Apr 1 '14 at 18:45

I think this is an SE April fools day gag. They are offering "magic unicoins" that you can use to do things like (appear to) increase your reputation, etc. I am not surprised that it does not have any real effects (for example, you don't get the extra privileges that would come with that reputation). I predict that it will be gone at midnight GMT.
