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 Furthermore, the "delay" here seems to be more severe, as the "outdated" rep showed is of several days ago (for example, I turned 3k on SO almost exactly a week ago, but the rep shown on MSO is still 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?

  • How did you even get those Meta sites in your community list? – rene Nov 12 at 17:00
  • have no idea :0) don't recall adding them manually – DarkCygnus Nov 12 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 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 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 at 20:06
  • @rene you can add any site by just clicking on the [edit] button. – WELZ Nov 13 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 at 13:01
  • One month after posting, the situation persists... any new lights on this one? – DarkCygnus Dec 6 at 20:39
