Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

Possible Duplicates:
How did I get 5 points for 2 upvotes on my answer, on SO

“Recent activity” vote counts are missing/corrupt

Why does this happen?

In this case, I have 3 upvotes on one question and 7 upvotes on another. But the net is just 22, instead of 100. Why? Neither are community wiki.
