I looked at my reputation in chat: it's 3299. In my profile, it's 3377. How can this be? Is it by design?

After I left all chat rooms, it should have been 3387, but was still 3299.

Caching. The answer is always caching. –  Bart Sep 22 '12 at 15:09
@Bart, correct if i am wrong, Caches have different types ? because when i enter in chat room in the morning, in chat room whole day it shows my reputation which was in the morning, but from my other site's profile it shows updated reputation, after half-hour or hour. –  Lucifer Sep 22 '12 at 15:22
Yes, I think there are several caching mechanisms there. Separate for each different functionality block (i.e for chat) –  Rafael Osipov Sep 22 '12 at 15:46
@Bart perhaps you should support this totally real and not-at-all joking feature request. –  Pops Nov 21 '12 at 17:20
@PopularDemand See, that's why you're Popular and not Unpopular. You have my vote. –  Bart Nov 21 '12 at 17:36

There is no confusion in it, when you entered in the chat room, your reputation was 3299. Now by the time pass when you did other activity on Stack Overflow ( answering,reviewing,voting ) your reputation get changed because your answer got accepted and upvoted. So in your current profile it is showing your updated reputation which is 3387.

When there is any change ( upvote or downvote ) in the reputation it get reflect in profile. But the same updation is not take place of your chat session. This updation get effects only when you leave the chat room and join again.
