What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

For the two tags that I've checked, my score tally is one-tenth of what it actually is. For example, for the Perl tag I get the following:

"To edit this wiki, you must have a total score of 100 on non-community-wiki answers in this tag (you currently have 21), and at least 2000 reputation."

I think my tally is more like 210.

I think you're confusing vote score and reputation score.

As each vote is worth 10 reputation points, with 21 votes you'll have 210 reputation points.

@molecules: Note this is because not all votes turn into reputation with the daily reputation limit, so tracking actual votes is what affects tag-wiki-edit ability. –  Gnome Oct 29 '10 at 0:26

Thanks. To be more clear, I would refactor the message to be "To edit this wiki, you must have a total of 100 up-votes (less any down votes) on non-community-wiki answers in this tag (you currently have 21), and at least 2000 reputation." –  molecules Oct 29 '10 at 14:35
