In my SE network profile, I see 117 score for my top voted question. But if you visit the question, you'll find that it has 118 score. The last vote I got on that question was at least a week ago, IIRC. Bug?

  • I just up-voted you in order to see if it updates. It is cached obviously, and I guess the cache didn't update for a while. So should we blame caching? Yes, we should! Commented Sep 21, 2015 at 7:39
  • Sorry for being dumb, but could you tell me what "cache" means? I've heard it from several places, but I don't know what that is.

  • @PatrickHofman Yes. It is now updated. You can retract your vote.

Caching should be blamed. After I voted on the question, the stats updated. I guess the stats updating is triggered by a vote on the post, which fails sometimes for unknown reasons.

I guess a developer should check why the updating could fail, and if it is a broader problem.

  • @CoolGuy, if you feel like it, keep the question open so a developer could check this post. Maybe your question will get skipped when you accept my answer. (Although I appreciate you accepting my answer) Commented Sep 21, 2015 at 7:48

    Might be related to un-upvote as hinted here: such event might not trigger the network profile synch process. Commented Dec 15, 2015 at 19:00
