After a user requested their duplicate accounts be merged on Bio, I'm a little puzzled by their reputation.
Account A posted a question which at the time of merger had 2 upvotes, 1 downvote. I make this a net score of
+10 -2 = +8. This should make that accounts total rep 9 including the mimimum value.
Account B at the time of merger had 3 answers, 2 deleted of which one had an upvote. Again by my reckoning that makes a total reputation of the minimum 1.
I would expect, therefore, that after the merge the user would have 9 rep as a result of 2 upvotes on questions, 1 downvote on questions. Yet the account actually has 11 rep. Whilst this is clearly a travesty of justice that needs to be fixed as the highest priority, I am interested as to what I'm missing here.
I guess it could either be:
- The downvote on the question, originally attributed to Account A wasn't moved to Account B but the upvotes were.
The minimum rep of both accounts is transferred in the merger giving the extra +2. Don't see why this would happen though.
Just thought to check the reputation page (facepalm) and saw that the -2 entry for the downvote is indeed missing:
