The rep log shows -1 then +2, but is totaled as -9. I expected the total rep to be calculated as +1.

enter image description here


Looks accurate...

 3   5740267 (-1)
 16  5740178 (2)
 2   5740098 (10)
 2   5739901 (10)
 1   5739901 (15)
-- 2011-04-21 rep +36   = 605 

I was unaware of the tool. Very nice.

Does stackoverflow.com/reputation show different numbers for today? – Arjan Apr 21 '11 at 7:04
Triggering recalc fixed the total as displayed in the header. Not a bug? Just me being an impatient user? – Ed Chapel Apr 21 '11 at 7:13

Someone probably removed an upvote on one of your answers. While this is reflected in the net daily rep change, it is not recorded as a separate action (instead, it simply removes the previous vote from history).

That's a reasonable answer, except the daily rep total shouldn't show a negative value. In this case, at the time of the screen shot, it should still have been +1. – Ed Chapel Apr 21 '11 at 7:18
Revoked upvotes show on history? Is that a new feature? – YOU Apr 21 '11 at 7:18
@Ed From the start of today UTC, you dropped 9 rep, which is why it shows -9. The values there are net change for the time range, which includes revoked votes. – waiwai933 Apr 21 '11 at 7:32
@YOU They don't show up except in the net change amounts (you can't see them individually)—see this post for further details. – waiwai933 Apr 21 '11 at 7:34
That link is helpful. Jon Skeet made the same argument I was making and was given the same answer. – Ed Chapel Apr 21 '11 at 7:38

As the new reputation changes roll out, removed votes will now show as a distinct event in the reputation tab on your user profile.
