When analyzing this question on MathOverflow Meta, I noticed that this user's reputation history doesn't show the three upvotes to their recent community wiki answer; there's not even an entry without the green +x reputation label:

However, my own reputation history, even when viewing while being logged in as another account, does show two recent upvotes to this FAQ.

Further analysis by Martin shows that it might be related to not having any other reputation events that day; I've checked some old posts of mine on MathOverflow and can confirm.

    I originally commented on MO, but this is probably a better place. Based on what I saw in the past (while obsessively checking my reputation tab and votes on my posts), it seems that the votes on CW-posts are shown in the reputation tab only if there is some other reputation change in the same day. I thought that this was intentional - since this behavior existed for a long time.

  • Here is a feature request from 2010: Add votes on my CW posts to my summary screen. The images in that post are dead, but form the description it seems that it is basically about this. And this is also related, at least tangentially: Tracking of Community Wiki upvotes and Comment Upvotes?

  • This seems possibly intentional to me. I'd either make this a support question asking if it's intentional, or a feature request asking for those events to be added. Jun 24, 2020 at 7:59

    @Sonic well, hiding them altogether would make sense. They don't show up on /reputation either. However, showing them inconsistently like this doesn't seem status-bydesign.

  • Would "other" be a better word then "real"?

    @Luuklag I'd opt for "reputation-bestowing" if it weren't too long ...
