What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 149 Stack Exchange communities.

On the reputation tab of my profile on Stack Overflow, I can see upvotes on posts that are Community Wiki. For example, on November 13th 2012, I received one upvote on a Community Wiki post:

Community Wiki upvote on reputation tab of casperOne's profile on Stack Overflow

However, after putting all of my effort in creating a Stack Overflow-flavored version of Run-D.M.C.'s "Christmas in Hollis", I don't see the upvotes on the post in my profile, despite it (currently) having six votes:

Community Wiki upvote on reputation tab of casperOne's profile on Meta Stack Overflow

I'd expect that I can see upvotes on my CW posts on Meta just like I can on the main site.

Hmm, this seems to happen fairly inconsistently. At first I thought maybe it only happened with posts that were made community wiki in the original revision, but this doesn't seem to be the case. –  Tim Stone Dec 13 '12 at 21:59
@TimStone Well, the original version of the post is CW, it's just that it inherited that from the question. –  casperOne Dec 13 '12 at 22:01
@TimStone: Yeah, I'm a bit baffled. I have tons of CW events in my history, just look at May 2... This also probably means it's not limited to Meta, it's just a random hiccup somewhere that applies to all sites. –  animuson Dec 13 '12 at 22:02
Yeah, I meant it in the opposite sense that such posts would be hidden, but ChrisF's profile proves otherwise. –  Tim Stone Dec 13 '12 at 22:02
@TimStone Well, hopefully this will help you isolate the issue. –  casperOne Dec 13 '12 at 22:08
@animuson It's not limited to Meta, no, I don't see the December 10th up vote for the CW answer in question in my Stack Overflow profile –  Tim Stone Dec 13 '12 at 22:08

The bug is different than described...the votes don't appear on any site until a recalc.

The vote recording code doesn't record a target for that vote (since reputation-wise, it doesn't matter). However, as part of many things that happens on a recalc, the owners get fixed up and then the rep history items get created.

Starting with the next build, we'll record the votes with a target from the start...and the rep history items will follow.

Come on, Tim Stone should totally have been able to figure that out. rolls eyes –  animuson Dec 13 '12 at 22:25
