I have a Mathematica answer on a given tag () which has a few upvotes. However, when I look at my reputation for this tag, I have none. How can that happen?

    The tooltip is quite informative, just hover over the score count.

  • Is the "total score" the number of votes or obtained rep points?

  • @JeremyHeiler "total score" is upvotes - downvotes. Apr 7, 2012 at 22:46

According to the revision history, you just added that tag 14 hours ago. So, that tag isn't yet calculated for you since you haven't had any other questions under it.

Tag scores are heavily cached. They are only updated once a day. Your tag scores should be updating sometime in the next 1 to 2 hours. They usually update sometime around midnight UTC. At that time you should see the [pdf] tag appear in your profile along with your score.

As usual, have patience. :)
