While using the top bar to navigate across communities, I noticed that the reputation displayed on meta sites on that list does not match the one of their corresponding main sites:

enter image description here

I have noticed on past situations that reputation gained takes a bit to "update" on the display on Meta sites (that is, if you gain rep on SO, for example, it will take some time for you to see your updated rep on MSO).

However, I have never noticed this behavior here, on the Sites List of the top bar. Furthermore, the "delay" here seems to be more severe, as the "outdated" rep showed is of several days ago (for example, I turned 3k on SO almost exactly a week ago, but the rep shown on MSO is still <3k).

Any idea what could be causing this behavior?


Update: 2 months later this persists: my main site rep updates correctly but their corresponding meta rep remains the same as in the image above.


Update: As per Catija's suggestion I removed the site (MSO) and put it back in, but it didn't update the rep.

However, after removing one site (TWP Meta), waiting at least a day, and then adding it back I see that although the reputations still don't match, the number displayed did changed a bit (previously 29,924 but now 33,112):

    How did you even get those Meta sites in your community list? – rene Nov 12 '18 at 17:00
  • have no idea :0) don't recall adding them manually – DarkCygnus Nov 12 '18 at 17:03
  • If it helps, today (18 days later), both my meta reps are still unchanged bot the main site reps has changed – DarkCygnus Nov 12 '18 at 17:04
  • @rene just a wild thought I had. I do recall adding Meta TWP on my sites displayed on the SE Android App... could that be related perhaps? – DarkCygnus Nov 12 '18 at 19:53
  • turns out I just managed to add them on the site. I must have overlooked that when I tried it earlier today. – rene Nov 12 '18 at 20:06
  • @rene you can add any site by just clicking on the [edit] button. – WELZ Nov 13 '18 at 13:00
  • Also worth noting, that it doesn't just shows this rep difference on the list. If you open up the actual site and check your profile it has that different amount. – WELZ Nov 13 '18 at 13:01
  • One month after posting, the situation persists... any new lights on this one? – DarkCygnus Dec 6 '18 at 20:39

    Same thing here. In fact, it looks like it affects all Meta sites. – I say Reinstate Monica Dec 21 '18 at 17:28

    This seems never updated for me (Android and Android M) – iBug is disappointed in SE Jan 17 '19 at 14:04
  • @ɪBᴜɢ I see that the problem persist still... – DarkCygnus Jan 17 '19 at 15:50
  • Not to sound like your friendly neighborhood IT person... "Have you tried turning it off and back on again?" - By which I mean, have you tried removing it and adding it again? If you do this, does it have your updated rep or does it still show the same amount? If it shows the updated amount, does it update (check in a few days)? – Catija Jan 31 '19 at 3:10
  • @Catija I just tried doing that. Removed MSO from the list, put it back in, and rep is still the same for now... Let's see if it changes eventually – DarkCygnus Jan 31 '19 at 3:21

    OK. If that doesn't work, might try removing it, waiting a day and adding it. Mostly I'm curious what will happen. I'm not sure it will fix anything but it may be more interesting than just sitting on it. :P Thanks for reporting this... you're not the only one. Hopefully we can figure this out. – Catija Jan 31 '19 at 3:24

    Same bug here for 3+ months @Catija: meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/382603/… – Frakcool Apr 8 '19 at 16:17

It seems the global reputation recalculation following the change in question upvote reputation has reset the reputation of Meta sites to their correct values:

enter image description here

(My Meta Stack Overflow reputation in that list used to be 16k and a bit.) However, it's still not solved as you can see - I lost one reputation later and it's not reflected yet. I hope this information may help in fixing the bug.
