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

The <span> it's in has class bounty-indicator-tab, and I don't see any meaning to the number 9 in tab's content. Bug? enter image description here

It means that you've earned 9 reputation points since you last looked at the page.

The style is called bounty-indicator-tab because the team have given the number the same look and feel as the number of featured questions on the site.

That's kind of an awkward number to show. Today I earned rep in increments of 10 (except for a +2), so I still don't see how 9 could possibly be right. – Matt Ball Mar 25 '11 at 22:26

@Matt - 1 up vote received by you - 1 down vote given by you = net 9 points. This looks like only one vote so you must have down-voted earlier in the day and hit the rep cap. – ChrisF Mar 25 '11 at 22:28
    
I'm nowhere near rep cap for today, but I did cast a downvote on an answer which was then deleted. Even though I triggered a rep recalc before grabbing that screenshot, that's probably the answer. – Matt Ball Mar 25 '11 at 23:01
    
@Matt - I did take a look at your profile after posting that comment and didn't see a -1 and was going to add something about caching of values (honest) – ChrisF Mar 25 '11 at 23:05
