I noticed I have different values on SO, SU and this one. Is that a temporary thing, or is this intended?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
It's intentional. For instance, just because I've got a high rep by answering C# questions doesn't mean you can trust me about Exchange Server.
Reputation is supposed to be on a per site basis. Since rep is responsible for unlocking some of the higher level moderator features such as voting to close topics and editing capabilities, it helps if the user has shown that they are familiar enough with both the system and the subject matter before they are given the abilities.
