What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

I was looking at the reputation on a user and noticed he/she received +110 for an upvote on an answer they had. How does that happen? I thought the most you could get is +10 per upvote. Here is a screenshot of what I saw:

If you switch to the reputation by post tab, you see "+110/-4 13 events" for eleven up and two down votes. –  Daniel Fischer Jun 8 '12 at 17:19

Identical lines get combined, so the reputation page doesn't get cluttered.

The answer you mention simply got upvoted 11 times.

Likewise, the owner lost 4 rep because of two downvotes on the same answer.

To verify, you can check out the timeline of the question or sort the user's reputation page by post

And as quite usual on Stack Exchange, hover your mouse to see some details:

@Me, duh, stupid question. I had a brain lapse. Thanks for telling me the obvious. I would delete this post, but since you already answer, I can't. I'll go stand in the corner now. –  Linger Jun 8 '12 at 17:21

@ToddGrover: If you display by post rather than time, it will show an expandable section for that post which will expand into 11 separate upvote events. –  animuson Jun 8 '12 at 18:34
