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

Why is filtering users according to reputation working the same, regardless whether one chooses week, month, quarter or a year?

Given that this feature is also on stackoverflow and tex, I'd guess it's all over StackExchange? :)

This is not a bug but .

These time periods are calculated from the start of the current year.

It is the first week of the first month of the first quarter of the year - so cumulatively these would all be identical at this point.

Therefore, the reputation for this week/month/quarter/year is identical.

@Scrooge - Thanks Chris, was looking for the right tag name :) – Oded Jan 3 '12 at 13:59
Oh, I see now ... Oded, thank you for the answer. I just took the (wrong) intuition of weeks/months/etc. It tells I'm new ... and hey, thanks for all the down-votes. :) – Blaz Jan 3 '12 at 16:16
@courteous - The downvotes on meta mean disagreement... the rules here are a bit different. – Oded Jan 3 '12 at 16:18
Oh, I didn't get even that right ... thanks for explaining. – Blaz Jan 3 '12 at 16:20
