Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I notice that on chat, a user's reputation equals the sum of their reputations across all SE sites; whereas flair reputation equals the sum of reputations just for those SE sites where reputation is greater than 200. Is this difference in calculating rep deliberate? And if so, why?

I note that until about a year ago, Area51 showed rep on all sites (as chat does now), whereas flair showed the sum of rep only on sites where rep>200. After a discussion here on meta, Area51 was changed so that it conformed with flair. Can the same happen with chat?

I'm pretty sure this isn't the case now. Chat, Area51 and Flair reputation are all synced. – TIPS Aug 7 '15 at 9:43
