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

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

The dark one says how many answers the user has made in that particular tag; the light grey one says how many upvotes they received for them.

If you hover your cursor over the number, you get this information as a tooltip.
