Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

It's a little confusing...

I voted on the bottom question but don't think I've touched the top one at all.

enter image description here

I have had the "reputation cap" tool-tip as in the question @Mat has just posted.

My first thought is that you downvoted an answer and then undid the vote. – Matthew Read Mar 8 '12 at 21:31
@MatthewRead, that's possible, but I don't think I did this evening ( I'm UTC ) and it definitely didn't show up like this earlier in the day. – ben is uǝq backwards Mar 8 '12 at 21:33
In my case all refer to posts I somehow interacted with: either I downvoted a question, or one of mine Community Wiki posts was voted on. – Arjan Mar 8 '12 at 21:49
@Arjan, in that case Matthew Read is probably correct; I probably unupvoted or undownvoted... it'd be too much of a co-incidence otherwise. – ben is uǝq backwards Mar 8 '12 at 21:51
It does show this 0 rep for questions I've downvoted here (and not un-downvoted). Tooltip on that 0 is wrong too, see… – Mat Mar 8 '12 at 21:56
It's logging the 0 rep you lose from downvoting. It started happening sometime today. It looks like a bug. – The Community Mar 8 '12 at 22:05
The reputation calculation system is under major changes recently - can't avoid bug or two slipping through - moderator will probably pop in soon to explain. :) – Shadow Wizard Mar 8 '12 at 22:11
I get this when I downvote questions, could you verify? – Tom Wijsman Mar 8 '12 at 22:20
@TomWijsman, you want me to go around down-voting people? The bottom question I down-voted so probably. Sha Dow Wiz Ard +1, I figured it was something like that... – ben is uǝq backwards Mar 8 '12 at 22:25
@Ben: You could check whether you have down-votes on the freehand circled questions. – Tom Wijsman Mar 8 '12 at 22:28
up vote 8 down vote accepted

This did indeed change recently, we switched to an entirely different data source. What you're seeing is the result of up/downvotes, or changes that resulted in no rep.

We'll exclude changes that had no rep impact starting with the next build.
