Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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'm sure this is already answered somewhere, but the questions I find about this topic all seem to date from the Great Rep Recalc of 2010. On my /reputation page, it says:

days represented 1159
rep cap was reached via rep from upvotes *only* on 137 days
earned at least 200 reputation on 150 days
earned 0 reputation from suggested edits

But I have not been given a Legendary badge. Recalcing the reputation doesn't change anything.

Using the Stinking Badges app, it says I've reached the rep cap on 148 out of 150 days. What does this external app know that the "official" /reputation page does not? Why are the two out of sync, and why can't the real page use the same data that the app is using?

Just guessing - the app isn't using the live databases, but an earlier copy? – Bo Persson Jul 27 '12 at 12:41
The job to check for "Legendary" badges doesn't run so often. It likely will take a few days. – Daniel Fischer Jul 27 '12 at 12:44
