    I've noticed that when something I downvoted gets deleted, and it thus puts me up one rep, the new top bar seems to completely screw up on calculating the actual gain. Had you downvoted something else in that time that has since gone poof? Commented Dec 5, 2013 at 21:23
  • @BillyMailman I downvoted things that got deleted but not at the time of the notification

  • My experience is the notification is your net rep gain since you last checked, not your net for the day, so if you checked it and cleared it several times, it would only show your changes since you last clicked on the menu Commented Dec 5, 2013 at 22:01
  • @psubsee2003 I don't think that is my case. I check every time I get a notification

    @Tijesunimi on the same site though? Just thinking out loud. I haven't been answering or asking much in the last week, so I haven't had enough rep changes to see it in action on multiple sites, but once you click on it, it should go away. However, it may not go away on all sites? Commented Dec 5, 2013 at 22:09

    Not sure how related this is, but it's really annoying when someone deletes an answer you've downvoted and you get a +1 notification, but clicking on it won't show the deleted answer on the list. You have to dig through profile page rep change lists to find where and what answer was deleted.
