For example here. I cant seem to correlate any relation between the two numbers. It says I have 222 total score for the jquery tag but how is this evaluated.

The first is the number of upvotes received by the user in non-community wiki situations. The second is number of non-CW answers (or questions in the questions part).

ah, so the title on the element is wrong. – redsquare Jul 7 '09 at 17:57
cheers weblog . – redsquare Jul 7 '09 at 17:57
What title are you talking about? – XMLbog Jul 7 '09 at 17:57
it says 'total score' when you hover over the number – redsquare Jul 7 '09 at 17:58
Yeah, it's a total score. The total score of that user, for that tag. That's the number of upvotes (probably with downvotes subtracted but I can't confirm or deny this). – XMLbog Jul 7 '09 at 18:01
well an upvote is + 10 so the total score is upvotes * 10 surely? – redsquare Jul 7 '09 at 18:34
Just a small correction... the second number appears to be the number of non-wiki answers that you have earned at least one upvote for. In other words, it doesn't tally answers with 0 upvotes. – gnostradamus Jul 7 '09 at 18:34
@redsquare: It's not the rep you have earned from the upvotes, it's the upvotes themselves. – XMLbog Jul 7 '09 at 18:53
ok, to me score===rep as we dont really deal with just upvotes anywhere else on the site – redsquare Jul 7 '09 at 19:07
I agree that it's confusing the way it's worded. It's total upvotes, not total score. – Matt Hamilton Aug 5 '09 at 1:08
Total upvotes - total downvotes? e.g. if I have an answer that was upvoted twice but downvoted once, does this count as +2 or +1? – Ether Nov 1 '09 at 0:45
@Ether: +1, if I'm not mistaken. – XMLbog Nov 1 '09 at 14:10

The first number is votes the second is answers . I believe the votes are a net of upvotes minus downvotes. And I believe the answers may only take into account answers where you received a vote.
