I am confused. I managed to make my own Tip/Trick[^] publicy available without even doing anything . The only thing I did were some changes in its content and clicking on "Publish" when I was finished. After 2 or three hours the tip was suddenly available and as publisher was my name there[^]. Not that this is critical IMO, but it is strange. Can anyone tell me what on earth I did??
I think I first complained, then learned to live with it, around three years ago. Got the impression at the time that server time was subject to summer time and someone got the +/- an hour screwed up, but it's so long ago it's faded from the little grey cells.

Author Reputation Point calculations seems to be buggy(since a very long time).
For eg: I have two articles and two tips, all of them got avg rating 5.0 ie no downvote. Article and Tips toatal vote is 10.
1 article has been downloaded 2093 times and other one 175 times.
Artcles book marked 20 times.
Tips book marked 12 times.
But my author reputation points are : 2080...
OK that makes some sense given the article but it's a mess in terms of stats with both sites still saying 0 articles posted and CP Rep history indicates this user has posted 4 or 5 articles stretching back to 2006. The rest are still AWOL.
I can only guess that someone has done a manual data migration between the 2 sites and it has not gone well.

Probably unsynchronized Servers, when you visited the profile you landed in one server with not actual data. You can try to reload a couple of times, it usually solves it
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpfull answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
