# Why isn't my reputation count raising when my post gets upvoted on meta?

## Here's my problem:

I've had some upvoted posts that haven't raised my reputation count. It will sometimes take some time to notify me and raise my reputation count, but it's been 36 hours, and still no notification.

Here's a couple of upvoted posts that haven't raised my reputation count:

It might just be another bug, but it could also be what is meant to happen.

## Here's my theory:

It could just be whatever changes are made to you're reputation count on the main site (in this case it's earthscience.se) is what happens to your reputation count on meta.

If my theory os correct, than it would be much appreciated it i was told so. But if my theory is incorrect, than I ask for answers that tell me what's really going on.

Thanks for understanding :)

• To quote the What is meta? help page: Votes on meta do not affect your reputation; your meta reputation is the same as your reputation on Earth Science Stack Exchange (synchronized hourly), though you earn separate badges. You must have 5 reputation to participate on meta. – plannapus Feb 7 '18 at 16:06
• Incidentally: if it's important to you to acquire a high reputation score, Earth Science is not a good stackexchange for you. Firstly, the topics are mostly technical and can require a lot of expertise, time, and effort to address. Secondly, even good, high-effort questions and answers often get few votes simply because there are few active users here. By comparison, sites like Puzzling and English Language provide more reputation in less time, because they have more users and because posts are often quicker to write. – Pont Feb 14 '18 at 16:25
