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

Below is the snapshot of what I can see now on my reputation tab.
However, I think that numbers are a little off.

There is a limit 200 a day. I definitely hit the limit. I can tell that by those few upvotes that where not accounted. You can see one recent upvote like this in the list.

I have 6 correct answers, which is 6x15 = 90.

So I expect the total to be 290. I can understand -1 from downvote. So result would be 289, not 279.

Can anybody explain why? Not a big deal, just curious if this is a bug or I miss something.

There's also a -2 from another downvote, so it'd be 287? – Adam May 28 '11 at 22:07
    
@Anna Lear - and there is compensating +2 too from upvote that was supposed to be +10, but was cut off by the 200 limit. – Alex Aza May 28 '11 at 22:08
    
Aha, my bad. Missed that. – Adam May 28 '11 at 22:10

Read this answer and then perform a reputation recalc and check the numbers again: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/92324/… – Rick Sladkey May 28 '11 at 22:11
    
@Rick Sladkey - thank you, recalculation fixed it. – Alex Aza May 28 '11 at 22:31
up vote 2 down vote accepted

This happened previously because of reputation skew from deleted posts and votes not immediately being accounted for. This is no longer the case.
