# Incorrect reputation being displayed

At the start (for a day), I had 2980 rep. I just returned now, answered a question here. The user up-voted me and chosen it as his answer. Then, I blinked at my user card showing 3005 rep. Then, something bugged the author (maybe a formula), he deselected mine and selected the other one. Then, I see my rep. still showing 2980 and not 2990 as my answer still has the vote.

NOTE: That 10 rep. is not a great deal though. But, I'm curious whether users have seen such a thing (bug) around in SE..?

This can happen, though rarely as a race condition in the accept and upvote saving to the database at the same time. This is an artifact of your reputation update being = and not +=, and the base amount loaded in overlapping requests. This can't really go away completely until we get rid of Linq2SQL completely and that's a huge task we have to stop and do.
