What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I have looked at this user and his top answer is for question "What is the best comment in source code you have ever encountered?"

While ordinarily I would not care, the vote counts are quite disproportionate: 408 stated on the userpage, and 4 on the question page itself. There is a tag "(2)" next to the link to answer on the userpage. Could that be related, and if so, how is it related?

Where is that duplicate? I know this has been asked before... – Troggy Oct 6 '09 at 20:42

The user has multiple answer to the question, they have +404 for this answer. The (n) (in this case 2) means the user has multiple answers to the question. I don't know that it is documented which answer you will be taken to if you click on the link in the case of multiple answers. I think the most recently posted, but again, I don't know that its been documented.

A tooltip when pointing over that number would be great. – Ivan Vučica Oct 10 '09 at 15:20

The (2) indicates that this user has posted 2 answers for that question. His other answer accounts for the discrepancy in upvotes.
