What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 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

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

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. :)

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...

SITE Current - Recalc = LOST
SO   45423   - 44921  =  498

I lose some because of the reduced up-votes on questions; I lose some more because of votes for now deleted questions, etc. I gain some back because of the 'accepted' answers not being part of the daily limit any more. I had been wondering whether I needed to request a recalc; now I don't have to because it will happen anyway.

Maybe the site should do a recalc for each user every month or so - it could be batched over the entire month, rather than all at once. And a statistic on the rep page could be 'date/time of last rep recalc'.

The other three sites are 'unchanged'.

PS. My SO rep has now been recalculated, and I find myself on the same page of users that I was yesterday (I seem to have moved up by no more than a dozen places actually). So for me it was a virtual no-op.

Looks like I'm set to lose almost 6k rep total, most of it from SO. I think this is likely due to the two highly-ranked questions that were migrated to Meta and deleted from SO that I still retained points for - the pre-migration rep will cease to exist on either site upon the recalc.

Interestingly, after the recalc my Meta rep will have surpassed my SO rep:

SITE  Recalc  - Current = Change (%)
SF    540     - 687     = -147   (-21%)
SO    14252   - 19060   = -4808  (-25%)
SU    1415    - 1600    = -185   (-11%)
MSO   15572   - 16178   = -606   (-4%)
TOTAL 31779   - 37525   = -5746  (-15%)

By and large, it seems like I'm the hardest hit so far.

edit: Looks like the new http://meta.stackoverflow.com/reputation now reflects the Meta-specific rep rules.

Couldn't care less. I still think of these forums as modifiable Usenet / Fidonet. :-) But I do think these sites are lately changing too fast: should slow down a little, and do not change anything for a while to stabilize the system. They're becoming overly complicated.

Doesn't affect me that much, but here is how it affects me:

TOTAL   3096  -   3047  =   49 (-1.58%)

Not sure why I am loosing 9 rep on SO when I have no question votes, but it's only 9 rep and it's not like I can do anything about it, so I don't really care. :)

The hit on SO is isn't massive but it surely isn't nice to lose rep ;-)

I got 26 upvotes on my questions (combined) so that would explain for a 130 loss from the 336 loss on SO. Not sure where the 206 other rep points went to (migrated questions maybe?)

I just had a recalc done on SO at my own request and lost a little over 400 rep, so I will be getting a chunk of it back now. The most significant hit in terms of percentage is at SF, but I really don't belong there anyway.

I lost more on MSO than on SO, but it doesn't matter here. Looks like I haven't really participated on SF that much... :(

Total lost: 950 rep points (counting MSO)
