I am finding that what my reputation points section says and what is in the question area are sometimes different. Example: I up voted a question and I got -1 for downvoteing it.; It says in my rep that I got 1 down vote and 2 up votes but the answer has 0 votes next to it.

I am sure that if you all pay attention it is happening to you to. Recommendations?

    Care to give us some example of these questions so we can take a look? Also, probably not related, have you tried a rep recalc at judaism.stackexchange.com/reputation ? – Hod - Monica's Army Dec 5 '11 at 7:33
  • Why do Music Tapes and CDs have the message – morah hochman Dec 5 '11 at 13:31
  • There are others as well, I can't compile a whole list as once I noticed it I found many. – morah hochman Dec 5 '11 at 13:31
  • Another one: I voted it up and they gave me -1 for voting down the question about who should we give Tzedaka to. – morah hochman Dec 5 '11 at 13:34
  • Also, do we get points for up voted comments? If so, I have 8 upvotes for a comment about Christmans music and no points. – morah hochman Dec 5 '11 at 13:35
  • As I said I have even more examples. Check out your list, I am sure others are having the same problem. – morah hochman Dec 5 '11 at 13:35

    Comment upvotes affect display only, not reputation. Comments are second-class citizens by design. – Isaac Moses Dec 5 '11 at 15:25

    @IsaacMoses, re "Comment upvotes affect display only, not reputation": True, but they also yield badges. – msh210 Dec 5 '11 at 21:21
  • @msh210, good point. – Isaac Moses Dec 5 '11 at 21:31
  • @msh210 More like 'badge' singular. – Double AA Jul 22 '12 at 4:51

On your music answer, I see one upvote and one downvote from other users, for a total of 0 votes. On your reputation tally, I see under yesterday (Dec. 3) +10/-2 for one upvote and one downvote on that question. This is all based on other people voting on your post, not on your votes on other peoples' posts.

This all seems consistent to me. Am I missing something?
