Having associated my Math.SE account to meta.SO (to post this), I got the association bonus +100 on both sites. The reputation tab in my profile confirms this. But the drop-down activity summary, shown when hovering over my user name, says it's +90.


Looks like a bug. I thought of posting this on meta.SO, but there the amount is shown as +100 in both places. Could be a Math.SE-specific bug for all I know.

Clarification: "drop-down activity summary" with +90 is shown when hovering over my user name here:


I am unaware of a more official name for it.

  • $\begingroup$ I don't understand what you mean by "the drop-down activity summary, shown when hovering over my user name". I've tried hovering over every occurrence of your user name I could find, and see no such drop-down. Could you describe in more detail what you are doing to produce it, and/or give a more complete screenshot? $\endgroup$ May 19 '13 at 1:12

    $\begingroup$ @ZevChonoles Done. The activity summary is shown when I hover my user name. I don't think you would be able to reproduce the error without being an SE developer. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Ah, yes, that drop-down; I should have remembered :) I'm pretty sure you're right, that's only visible to you and the SE team. $\endgroup$ May 19 '13 at 1:47

    $\begingroup$ Hooray! We found a contradiction in mathematics. Now we can all go home! :-) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Asaf, strictly speaking, doesn't the contradiction just occur in systems strong enough to do counting? $\endgroup$ May 19 '13 at 6:04

  • $\begingroup$ @Gerry: Strictly speaking? Yes. But one can label it as heuristics implementations of some algorithm and conclude that the contradiction must be in the mathematics. I'm trying to be a bit comp. sci. here... :-) $\endgroup$
