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

The vote count displayed in the reputation tab is wrong if the answer gets accepted. The acceptance of the answer counts as a vote.

That might be by-design, but I think it's confusing.

For example it lists:

+75 1 hour ago 7 votes C# - Static readonly strings — possible to run into multithread issues?

But that answer is +6|-0. It's the same for all my accepted answers.

I am not positive about this, but certainly seems this is by-design. – Marcelo Jun 16 '11 at 21:43

This is correct in the "by post view", it is an "accept vote" that happens, and making that particular thing any clearer would cost some valuable real-estate.

However there was room for improvement, if you got a bounty or accept on that post, we'll give it some nice styling to quickly indicate that, you can now see this styling ion your profile.

If the answer was awarded a bounty or accepted answer (bounty wins in a fight), you'll see this styling:

you just wanted to show off the +970, didn't you ;) – Lorem Ipsum Jun 17 '11 at 16:43
@yoda - I've only won a few bounties ever, it was the easiest to find in the rep list – Nick Craver Jun 17 '11 at 17:38
