While tracking the bronze badge, I noticed that some of the recent upvotes I got on answers to questions featuring this tag did not increase my score. Actually, they seemed to not have been taken into account at all.

Disappointed, I decided to investigate on the matter and I summed up all the upvotes I got on answers to questions. I ended up finding $94$ ; I got $97$ total upvotes on the tag and $3$ of them are on questions I asked. However, on my user profile, the displayed score for this tag is $89$.

enter image description here

Therefore, how the tag scores are actually computed?

Any enlightenment will be greatly appreciated!

    $\begingroup$ Two possibilities: the scores are not updated in real-time; or, you have answered CW questions with that tag, which don't count towards your score. $\endgroup$ – J. M. isn't a mathematician Dec 17 '16 at 19:50

    $\begingroup$ The tag scores in the profile are updated only once a day. If that doesn't account for the difference, that would be due to CW answers usually. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Fischer Dec 17 '16 at 19:52
  • $\begingroup$ It must be the first possibility then, I never answered community-wiki questions. I'll keep an eye on my score to see whether or not it'll increase in the coming few days. Thank you both for your reply! $\endgroup$ – C. Falcon Dec 17 '16 at 19:53
  • $\begingroup$ Yep, it's in sync now. Displays 97, and a "manual" score count also gave 97. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Fischer Dec 18 '16 at 10:13

    $\begingroup$ @J.M. It is more relevant whether the answer is CW. (Of course, answer to a CW-question is automatically CW, but it is possible to post a CW answer to a non-CW question.) $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Dec 18 '16 at 12:48
  • $\begingroup$ @Martin, ah, I forgot about that possibility; thanks for the extra accuracy! $\endgroup$ – J. M. isn't a mathematician Dec 18 '16 at 12:50
  • $\begingroup$ @DanielFischer Thank you for your personal involvement! $\endgroup$ – C. Falcon Dec 18 '16 at 12:55
