Today I got the Epic badge. It should be awarded for earning 200 or more rep on 50 days.

It did not expect to get it. Why?

When I open http://stackoverflow.com/reputation I see the rep calculations. And at the bottom it says:

earned at least 200 reputation on 38 days

Well, I don't bother too much, because there seems to be a bug in the badge calculation which counts deleted posts reputation too.

But when I open my rep graph I see this:

Rep graph

Yes, I counted them manually: On 42 days I hit 200 rep or more in that graph.

So why the difference between the rep graph and the /reputation page?

I dug a little deeper and noticed one day (2012-04-26, there must be 3 others). According to the /reputation page I earned 178 rep:

-- 2012-04-26 rep +178  = 8751

But according to the rep graph I earned 203 rep. It contains 1 answer more: SQL, Android SQLITE Join

Seems like the question got unaccepted another day and an upvote undone.

Looks like either the rep graph or the /reputation page is inaccurate. Is that a bug or just by-design?

Edit

I found another issue:

-- 2013-01-10 rep +200  = 3973   

Shows 200 rep on Jan, 10th in my rep statistics. But the graph shows

290 points earned with upvotes! That is totally wrong!

There was a recent change to the badge that makes downvotes you cast and receive not count towards the totals for the badge. Do you have some days that are very close, hold the downvotes? –  animuson May 31 '13 at 20:06
    
Not really. I have a few removed posts that keep me from 200 rep some days. –  juergen d May 31 '13 at 20:18

Looks like you want the badge to be taken away... :-/ –  Mr.ØØ7 Jun 1 '13 at 2:45
    
Congrats on the badge! I'm at 13/50 but working on Generalist (17/20) –  Joe Frambach Jun 18 '13 at 12:30
    
You have show removed posts checked, look at January 21st and you can see. /reputation never included deleted content where the profile shows it added and then removed if you opt into doing so. –  Nick Craver Aug 3 '13 at 11:38
