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

The tag's info tab show upvote count different from the stats tab. For instance, in tag boost stats tab shows 91 upvotes for all time for me, and info tab shows You were upvoted 94 times on non community-wiki answers with this tag. Same mismatch in other tags. In C++ tag I have 1,544 vs 1619 upvotes on these tabs.

Confirmed. It's slightly off in every tag. – Pëkka Jul 23 '10 at 12:26
up vote 5 down vote accepted

The one in the stats tab is the total score, which is total upvotes minus the downvotes.

I'll accept this. This behavior is not obvious though. – Kirill V. Lyadvinsky Jul 23 '10 at 12:33

There's a difference between "upvotes" and "score". The stats tab uses a crazy formula to determine its value, which is summarized as the "sum of your net score (upvotes - downvotes) on all non-CW posts with a positive net score (upvotes > downvotes)". The info tab just tells you how many upvotes you have, regardless of downvotes.
