Profile dropdown on Meta of all Stack Exchange sites (except Meta Stack Overflow), displays votes and votes cast. What number is displayed in the votes row?

All the main sites (and Meta Stack Overflow) display reputation instead of votes.

I understand that reps on per-meta-sites are same as on the corresponding main site, so reputation is not shown but what is the first votes record?

  • My guess is those are the votes you received on Meta posts (since reputation is shared between meta and main site). Did you get any votes on any meta site recently to check this? Nov 13, 2012 at 9:53

    @ShaWizDowArd my dropdown at Programmers meta appears to reflect votes I've got recently there: activity dropdown screen shot

Those appear to be the votes you received on your Meta posts.

Since reputation is shared between meta and main site, there is no point showing the reputation earned, so something unique to the meta site is displayed instead.

  • Votes or score? Also, is this mentioned in any post or faq? Nov 13, 2012 at 10:55

    @Aziz well, as it's not separated to upvotes/downvotes I would say score, meaning it can be negative. Didn't find and official mentioning of this just yet. Nov 13, 2012 at 11:12
