Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 was just looking through my "tags" progress on my profile and noticed some of the numbers don't add up. Take for example the [] tag. It says I have a score of 21 over 25 questions. When I drill down into the questions, I have a score of 22 for answers and 9 for questions. Where did 21 come from?

Similarly, for [javascript] it says I have 98 votes but I can count 107.

The tag scores aren't updated dynamically, they're recalculated (I believe) once per day.

The 21 is the answer score you had yesterday for . You have one answer today with one upvote. The score should be 22 in a few hours. (Looks about the same for Javascript, I'm guessing you got a couple of upvotes today for answers that date back a bit.)

Question score and wiki posts don't count towards tag specialist badges.
