This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • It's not wrong exactly (the numbers are valid sums), it's just using completely inconsistent criteria to pick the numbers. Regardless, it should definitely be the same. – Tim Stone Dec 26 '13 at 17:34

It would appear as if the regular (browser-based) site is calculating the tag score based on answers-only, which is the expected behavior since that is what your tag score is for the purposes of tag badges.

However, a quick check of the Android app suggests that it is using all posts (questions and answers) to calculate.

Take the for example:

You have answered 8 questions in the tag, and the scores are:

7 + 6 + 2 + 0 + 5 + 2 + 11 + 1 = 34

which matches your tag score on the main site

However, in the screen shot of the Android app, it is showing your tag score to be 136 in the tag.

If you consider your 15 questions asked before today (since today's questions won't be included until after the script runs tonight) in the bug tag as well:

2 + 4 + 4 + 10 + 13 + 0 + 2 + 2 + 1 + 6 + 5 + 47 + 3 + 0 + 3 = 102

And 34 + 102 = 136, which matches your screen shot.

The criteria for calculating the tag score between the app and the regular site is inconsistent, and I think it definitely needs to be adjusted.
