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

Out of curiosity, why do some answers on my profile page have a number in parenthesis at the end?

That means you provided two answers for that question. In the case of the question you pointed out... Wikimapia and SourceForge. Also, the net score shown next to the question is a total of the score for all the answers you provided to that question. In this case 1 for Wikimapia and 2 for SourceForge = 3 that gets displayed.
