From my rep history today:

-8| 1 hour ago| downvote| Does “Pacific Rim” have references/influences

How is that possible? Usually if it was 4 DVs, it would show that it's 4 (and make it expandable).

My only guess is that someone reversed their upvote, and the system has a bug where instead of 1 DV and 1 un-upvote, it just printed the total and marked it as a DV.

  • Care to explain the DV given that Kevin confirmed the bug? – DVK-on-Ahch-To Aug 31 '13 at 17:21

It looks like events under days that are expanded when the page loads lack the detail arrows for individual posts; those that load closed do contain the arrows when expanded.

The bottom row here (+40) should say 4 events and expand;

Bug

Like this

Nobug

This seems somewhat intermittent. For instance, my SO profile exhibits the bug, but Jon Skeet's does not. On scifi, my profile looks fine but DVK's shows the bug. I could not repro on several other sites, but on MSO it seems to happen every time..

  • Huh, I never noticed that before.. But to me, neither yours nor DVK's expands within the past 2 days. Probably not a simple per-account bug, if it is a bug and not a design choice. – Izkata Aug 31 '13 at 15:24

If you check the timeline, you got 4 downvotes, which are -2 each - totals to -8.

It shows up in the rep history the same as upvotes, the total for that question/answer for that day. For example, this:

+60     16:38   upvote  How did Hermione catch Rita Skeeter?

does not mean you got +60 rep for 1 upvote.

  • Today's votes typically have a triangle allowing them to expand into individual vote lines. – DVK-on-Ahch-To Aug 31 '13 at 10:45
  • @DVK Wait 2 days, then check again. I didn't know they could, as I don't look there often, but from Kevin's post it looks like the only ones that are consistently broken out like that are the older-than-2-days ones. – Izkata Aug 31 '13 at 15:26
