A question was posted to SO today, which I answered and then received a number of upvotes on. The question was later migrated to Programmers.SE, where it continued to accumulate votes. The votes received on the new site contributed to my reputation, but those received from Stack Overflow did not.
- is this intentional?
- are we breaking expectations by having the actual reputation earned from a question be different than its visible number of upvotes (ignoring the existence of CW)?
(Naturally, the reputation earned on SO disappeared from my audit trail after the migration, and after a reputation recalc will disappear from my total score, so I'm not asking about this part. I'm only asking about the deficit of reputation on the new site.)
