I was very happy when I saw a sum of new reputation of 123, thinking I may have won a bounty or something and looking forward to another epic day. Then I opened the menu and saw this:

Incorrect sum shown in the reputation change dropdown icon

I don’t know where the additional 1 came from but it was bugging to only see +23 reputation rather than the expected +123 reputation. It would be great if this bug were fixed.

You probably get a faster response. Worst case scenario, it gets closed as a dupe and you find out from the linked post what's happening. At least, that's what I'd personally do if I were you. $\endgroup$ – orthocresol Oct 10 '17 at 18:35
  • $\begingroup$ Did you get the association bonus on any sites? $\endgroup$ – jonsca Oct 10 '17 at 23:08
  • $\begingroup$ @jonsca The association bonus would show up, though. $\endgroup$ – Jan Oct 11 '17 at 8:39
  • $\begingroup$ @orthocresol Yeah, fixed, just wanted to have fun a little. $\endgroup$ – Jan Oct 11 '17 at 8:42
  • $\begingroup$ However dis- or favourable you are looking at the new top bar, it came to the whole network. As such it is an issue that should be addressed at Meta Stack Exchange, not here. I did a quick check on the bug reports of the last month and could not find anything similar. $\endgroup$ – Martin - マーチン Oct 11 '17 at 10:19

    $\begingroup$ @Martin-マーチン Whether or not this is a network-wide issue, I am pretty sure that the site meta is also the correct place to post this. Not everybody has or wants to join meta, yet this could be an issue to them. Along the same lines we have a local version of the support pages, if you wish. $\endgroup$ – Jan Oct 12 '17 at 12:28
  • $\begingroup$ Furthermore, I recalled that it was being rolled out stepwise, so I thought maybe not all sites had this yet … $\endgroup$ – Jan Oct 12 '17 at 12:29
  • $\begingroup$ I'm sorry I care about the rest of the network. Apparently you are right, this can be dealt with on the site meta - see, I even gave this an up-vote. $\endgroup$ – Martin - マーチン Oct 12 '17 at 12:45

This issue has long since been fixed. An explanation is over on Meta.SO but I didn’t understand the technical details.
