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

The dropdown under my name on SO shows

However, /reputation for the last several days shows

-- 2012-11-16 rep +32   = 47149     
 2   3630707 (10)
-- 2012-11-17 rep +10   = 47159     
 2  13354955 (10)
 2  12784567 (10)
-- 2012-11-18 rep +20   = 47179     
 2   1344255 (10)
 2   4551681 (10)
 3   9782522 (-1)
-- 2012-11-19 rep +19   = 47198  

Where is that extra +2 (in the display for today's reputation) for "sears credit card starts with 50 — fails regex" coming from?

Is it a bug?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I don't agree that this should be closed for being "too localized". The issue is about a disconnect between information shown on the dropdown and the reputation tab of the profile for "today" and information shown on /reputation for "today" (the definitions of "today" seem to be different). That user experience issue would affect any user. Perhaps there is a duplicate out there that would justify closing. – Eric J. Nov 19 '12 at 21:10
Why are you checking /reputation instead of your actual reputation history in the first place? Did you not check your reputation history first before going there? As far as I'm aware, the /reputation page isn't even maintained anymore (officially their stance is still "it's going to be removed" from back when they did the reputation history overhaul). – animuson Nov 20 '12 at 2:05
@EricJ. Don't get too hung up on this particular closure. It's seemingly common practice here on Meta for questions like these where a perceived bug/issue isn't really one. If you feel something particularly problematic has been left unaddressed, please do say so. If you fear this might be deleted at some point, I don't see that as likely to happen. – Bart Nov 20 '12 at 6:17

It's caused by an undownvote, as stated with the reputation tab of your profile.

Ah... so I did not find it in the /reputation URL because it applied on the day of the original downvote? – Eric J. Nov 19 '12 at 19:56
@EricJ. I am not entirely sure how the /reputation page is formed, but I would assume it's either listed for that day, or removed from there altogether. – Bart Nov 19 '12 at 19:57
