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

Meet my sockpuppet. He's only got reputation on meta and it's been that way since February the 9th.

That's because on February my sockpuppet... volounteered to a test on offensive flags and how they affect reputation. I thought I was done doing science from that experiment and yet here we are, three months later, wondering why there's this mismatch between site and meta reputation.

We already know that offensive/spam flags on meta should, but don't affect reputation on main but this is the inverse: offensive/spam flags on main don't affect reputation on meta even despite the hourly account sync.

This did come in handy today when I tried to do more science about flags and hellbans thereof, but it's still a bug.

Letting your kitten play with your sock puppet sounds like a recipe for disaster, @badp. I'm surprised your sock is still alive. – Mat May 11 '13 at 10:58
