Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

Before anyone says that I'm whining about the re-calc, let me just say that I'm not. I actually do like it.
But I also like stats (and being nosy), so post how much rep you will lose:


SITE  Current  - Recalc  = LOST
-------------------------------
SO       8430  -   6156  = 2274
SF        426  -    314  =  112
SU        584  -    205  =  379
MSO      1372  -    765  =  607
-------------------------------
TOTAL   10812  -   7440  = 3372

The new reps can be found at the bottom of those reports:

Remember that the rep-report for MSO shows +5 question upvotes, which won't be included when the change is rolled out. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/43004/… –  Gnome Mar 21 '10 at 4:54

Does anyone know when these momentous changes are actually going to happen? I would have thought the weekend was the obvious time, but apparently not. –  nb69307 Mar 21 '10 at 17:16

Stack Overflow
--------------
Before:   3170
After:    3101
--------------
Lost:       69 (-2.2%)

I only answered questions on SO and didn't ask any; the lost points are from answers I've deleted. The nice thing is that I'm still over 3k. :)

SO is the only site where I'd notice (or even care about) a hit. Depending on what happens between now and then:

Current - Recalc  = LOST
8172      7450      722  (-8.8%)

About 1.5 month's worth of rep for me, given the frequency where I find time to use the site. I'm not losing any functionality, so its nothing to cry over. Reaching 10k will just take a month or so longer, no big deal.

I, for one, welcome our new rep system overlords. The thing is, as many questions have already been asked, it is increasingly harder to reach the high rep spectrum by just asking lots of questions anyway. That will just continue over time.

May as well make it fair. I'm not shedding any tears.


Yep, I hit it dead on. I'm now at 7472 but had a few votes on answers prior to the recalc. Its all good, I'll be even happier when I manage to hit 10k.


I'll wait for the next DB dump, but looking over things, it seems like this had the exact intended result.

Yes, but I just recently saw a person with over 8000 rep ask a horribly made question and when I looked on their profile, over 700 questions and less than 70 answers... –  Earlz Mar 21 '10 at 19:49

SITE Current - Recalc = Change
SO   9241    - 9311   =  -70   (gained)

I'm most active on SO so rep on all other SOFU sites are unchanged.

Well, I was expecting to lose somewhere around 120 and I lost over twice that on SO - I think that's most likely largely due to some questions that got migrated later. The loss on the others was about what I estimated.

I wonder if it would be possible (in future) to show 'Rep Recalc' and the effect of it in a user's Recent section.

Ok, now I've got an additional puzzle - my Reputation link shows my overall total to be almost 286 less than is actually showing, and an answer I got 290 rep for has now vanished (I can't find the question either, although I'm unsure of its precise title). Getting confused...

TOTAL    3133 -    3111  =   22  (-0.70%)

Update: I lost 10 more points, probably due to an upvote by a user whose account has been deleted in the mean time. I have also climbed 10 pages up in the Users tab.
