On the reputation tab of my profile on Stack Overflow, I can see upvotes on posts that are Community Wiki. For example, on November 13th 2012, I received one upvote on a Community Wiki post:

Community Wiki upvote on reputation tab of casperOne's profile on Stack Overflow

However, after putting all of my effort in creating a Stack Overflow-flavored version of Run-D.M.C.'s "Christmas in Hollis", I don't see the upvotes on the post in my profile, despite it (currently) having six votes:

Community Wiki upvote on reputation tab of casperOne's profile on Meta Stack Overflow

I'd expect that I can see upvotes on my CW posts on Meta just like I can on the main site.

  • Hmm, this seems to happen fairly inconsistently. At first I thought maybe it only happened with posts that were made community wiki in the original revision, but this doesn't seem to be the case. – Tim Stone Dec 13 '12 at 21:59
  • @TimStone Well, the original version of the post is CW, it's just that it inherited that from the question. – casperOne Dec 13 '12 at 22:01
  • @TimStone: Yeah, I'm a bit baffled. I have tons of CW events in my history, just look at May 2... This also probably means it's not limited to Meta, it's just a random hiccup somewhere that applies to all sites. – animuson Dec 13 '12 at 22:02
  • Yeah, I meant it in the opposite sense that such posts would be hidden, but ChrisF's profile proves otherwise. – Tim Stone Dec 13 '12 at 22:02
  • @TimStone Well, hopefully this will help you isolate the issue. – casperOne Dec 13 '12 at 22:08
  • @animuson It's not limited to Meta, no, I don't see the December 10th up vote for the CW answer in question in my Stack Overflow profile – Tim Stone Dec 13 '12 at 22:08

The bug is different than described...the votes don't appear on any site until a recalc.

The vote recording code doesn't record a target for that vote (since reputation-wise, it doesn't matter). However, as part of many things that happens on a recalc, the owners get fixed up and then the rep history items get created.

Starting with the next build, we'll record the votes with a target from the start...and the rep history items will follow.

    Come on, Tim Stone should totally have been able to figure that out. rolls eyes – animuson Dec 13 '12 at 22:25
