Yesterday morning I was looking at my tag statistics and I distinctly remember seeing at least these two:

863 - Java
92 - C

During the rest of yesterday I've answered a bunch of questions on both Java and C and got upvotes for them (I was actually expecting the bronze for C today) and looking now I see exactly the same numbers as yesterday (and I'm absolutely sure an entire day has gone by, because the reputation tab lists 15 points for today).

I thought these statistics are updated after each day (at least it was like this before). Is something wrong?

They're cached. Exactly how long, I don't know, but I think more than a day. – Manishearth Jun 6 '12 at 9:14
@Tim ManishEarth: Are you sure? I've never seen this behavior before. – Tudor Jun 6 '12 at 9:15
Nope. Also, check if its a UTC day. IMO, you should wait an extra day before reporting the bug. Anyway, it's sort of valid, don't delete it now :) – Manishearth Jun 6 '12 at 9:19

Noticed the same thing, concurrent with the weird rep overflow. – Dave Newton Jun 7 '12 at 1:32

Apparently, the stats in the user activity dialog are calculated based on a database table that usually gets reset every UTC midnight, by means of a automated job.

It looks like the job didn't run again last night. This happened before and is nothing to worry about, see Activity overview not displaying today's reputation correctly

If the job itself isn't botched it should run again tonight and your stats will auto-correct.

This is the correct answer - a job wasn't correctly run, but has successfully completed now. – Jarrod Dixon Jun 7 '12 at 17:47
