In my profile of Mathematics SE, it shows that I've score of $7$ in algebra-precalculus tag.

enter image description here

However, if you manually count the scores of all the questions answered by of these tag, it comes out to be $9$. You can check here.

Is these really a mistake by the system or it will take time to appear the correct number?

(This question is solved now, no need to worry. )

    $\begingroup$ Your latest answer, which happens to have score 2, is very recent. Not everything is updated in (near) real-time. I'd wait a bit, say a day. Differently, yes, I think it just will take time for the correct number to appear. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @quid you're right but this is a recent problem. This happened just three or four days ago...some reputaiton points aren't added after 24h...I have never seen this bfore. $\endgroup$ Jun 29, 2020 at 13:15

  • $\begingroup$ I will. Note that the reputation points are added after some days. They're not lost. In the past at a certain time the reputaion points were updated. Always at the same hour. @quid $\endgroup$ Jun 29, 2020 at 13:25

    $\begingroup$ @Aryadeva interesting. I did not know that. It seems possible that this is even an intentional change. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I note that you edited one of the questions to include the tag. Your answer to that question has received two upvotes, which accounts for the discrepancy. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ ...or maybe not. After perusing the rest of the SE network, I don't see anything which backs up my theory. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The link you give finds seven search results with the tag, but your "top tags" for that category reflects only six posts. Perhaps the retagging will be caught in a recalculation. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Just to check the count, here is link to search for non-CW answers by this user in the algebra-precalculus tag. $\endgroup$ Jun 30, 2020 at 3:43

    $\begingroup$ Your profile page has now updated to show a score of $9$ and that $7$ posts are counted. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @hardmath, yes. Now, I got that the changes take time to appear rather than making it up instantly. :-) $\endgroup$
