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

My StackExchange network profile shows this:

The header of the Movies and TV site shows this:

This difference has persisted for well over 6 months. I reported it back in August 2012 (where the numbers were 833 and 941, respectively. Consensus at that time was that it was a caching issue. I think the duration of the difference shows that there really is a mismatch somewhere. For me the rep (either way) is not an important issue, but if this reveals a bug somewhere it's at least good to know it exists, I guess.


Two day after rep recalculation as suggested by JoachimSauer below: no difference (other sites' statistics are updated).

Your profile over there shows 1061 for me. – Joachim Sauer Feb 6 '13 at 13:16
@JoachimSauer Yes, but the graph doesn't, even when the last rep event was days ago. – Bart Feb 6 '13 at 13:17
Ah, I see. Seems like it's "just" a bug with the graph (or maybe even just the labels). When I first read this, I thought you expected a much wider bug (like some general miscalculation happening). – Joachim Sauer Feb 6 '13 at 13:18
@JoachimSauer I really don't know the scope of these calculations, just hope its not a big issue. – Gert Arnold Feb 6 '13 at 13:19
@GertArnold Most likely you broke it and you'll pay for it. You're on your own... :) – Bart Feb 6 '13 at 13:23
@Bart You may right be in so far that I've had a "history" at Movies. A massively upvoted question, including a rewarded bounty, was removed later when (beta) site policies changed, taking away part (not all - ??) of the rep. It was weeks after that that I first noticed the difference, so I can't really tell if this fact was related. – Gert Arnold Feb 6 '13 at 13:36
Have you tried triggering a rep recalc on the Movies and TV Reputation page? – Joachim Sauer Feb 6 '13 at 13:52
@JoachimSauer The depths of SE! Never knew this existed. Let me try. – Gert Arnold Feb 6 '13 at 13:55
@JoachimSauer Doesn't seem to make a difference. But maybe that's a caching issue :). – Gert Arnold Feb 6 '13 at 14:02
Well, think I found the cause. In short: deleted posts. In detail, see this: – Shadow Wizard Dec 10 '13 at 21:05
@ShaWizDowArd Justice, finally! Good job. So you question should become an answer here I guess, if that belongs to the mod powers. – Gert Arnold Dec 10 '13 at 21:29
@GertArnold just giving evidence, justice will be made if and when this is actually fixed. :-) – Shadow Wizard Dec 10 '13 at 22:44
