A vote in the meta category for the EE site reflected in my reputation. Is that a bug?
We've got a category for meta posts on the electrical engineering (EE) vsite. I've noticed that votes on my posts in the meta reflect in my reputation on the EE site. The votes on a local meta-EE shouldn't reflect on the reputation on EE. This looks like a bug (or a lack of feature), or a missing configuration.
Reputation should reflect what somebody knows about the subject matter of the site. If the upvotes in a meta count towards subject matter reputation, then it becomes easy to abuse the meta. If somebody wants cheap reputation, one can say something very popular along the lines of “free bread and circuses”, or just tell a joke, and get upvotes. But that doesn’t reflect his expertise in the subject matter, or his willingness to write quality Q&A. Meta shouldn't count towards reputation. The Old Republic SE got that one right.
