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
  1. Edited a previous question
  2. Downvoted a question
  3. Previous edit was accepted by a moderator

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 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
up vote 4 down vote accepted

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.
