Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

I was reading this question a few minutes ago and I realized that there are 2 upvotes, 0 downvotes but total votes equal 0 whereas it should be 2+0=2. Is this a bug?

i've seen a couple of those recently, generally with 0 upvotes and 1 downvote. maybe something's changed in the migration process and those are leftover pre-migration votes? – quack quixote Apr 20 '10 at 7:16

Interestingly, the problem has vanished now. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Apr 20 '10 at 12:04
The score as displayed is cached but when you click to get the vote break down it has to go and get the actual numbers. If you refresh the page you should see the correct value. – ChrisF Apr 20 '10 at 12:55
Refreshing did not work for the first few hours, but when I checked the answer after 4-5 hours, there was no problem. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Apr 20 '10 at 12:58
@ChrisF: yeah, tried that, saw the same thing. i didn't keep track of the posts i saw this on so i couldn't go back and re-check later. – quack quixote Apr 20 '10 at 23:07

This has been fixed and will be pushed to the sites tonight.

Looks like my cache theory was wrong then. – ChrisF Apr 21 '10 at 11:00
I just saw this on a question with negative votes. The question showed -1, but the vote split was 0/-2. Here's the link, but the votes will probably have changed by the time you see it:… Edit: already gone. Still want to check out this issue, though. – Jon Seigel Apr 21 '10 at 14:54
