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

I've noticed something odd happening on the Drupal Answers meta site.

The reputation shown in the top bar keeps jumping from:

Image 1

Am I (and my print screen function) just seeing things?

This is happening on the programmers meta as well. – Oded Apr 28 '12 at 16:09
No-repo on Movies' meta. – TylerShads Apr 28 '12 at 16:09
Probably to do with the different actual reputation one has on the main and meta sites and the new javascript polling code. – Oded Apr 28 '12 at 16:09
And print-screen is soooo WinXP – TylerShads Apr 28 '12 at 16:11
@TylerShads I'm on OSX Lion - I don't know what they call it? iPrintScreen? ;) – Clive Apr 28 '12 at 16:13
I cannot reproduce it on the same site. Do you have any extension, or UserScript that could interfere in some way? – kiamlaluno Apr 28 '12 at 16:26
@kiamlaluno - I noticed this only when I get upvotes on the meta site. – Oded Apr 28 '12 at 16:43
@Oded That is probably why I don't notice the behavior. – kiamlaluno Apr 28 '12 at 16:45
@kiamlaluno I don't have any SE specific extensions/UserScripts, no. I do have a few installed (YSlow/Adblock/some SEO tools), but nothing I imagine would interfere – Clive Apr 28 '12 at 16:46
@Clive It is probably related with receiving votes on the meta site, as Oded said. I don't recall seeing any change in the reported reputation, even if one of my answers have been up-voted, though. – kiamlaluno Apr 28 '12 at 16:48

Realtime reputation updates will be disabled on child metas since you can't really earn reputation on these sites. This will be in the next deploy.
