In the "Summary" box on my profile on Server Fault, I see a rep bubble with +20 next to my top tag:

What does this number signify?

I tried to search across MSE and MSO but I could not find anything specific about the top tag (most questions I could find are about the top tags, plural, from the "Tags" tab on my profile) or in particular about any reputation indicator next to it.

It's basically what @Elements in Space said in a comment. Here's a screenshot from my profile: enter image description here

Hovering over the bubble displays the message 'Reputation gained on this tag since your last visit to the reputation tab.'

(If you switch to tracking your next tag badge, the bubble disappears.)

    Thanks. The tooltip is obviously not available on mobile.

  • @tripleee I can't confirm about top tag rep, but on all rep tooltip is available for me on iPad after the tapping on it. Apr 24, 2023 at 6:41
